Meet South Australia’s Big 5

Forget a safari through the Serengeti, if you want to see extraordinary wildlife from sea to land then South Australia has it by the bucketload. Here’s a look at the exciting wildlife you can spot whilst on a South Australia Adventure Tour.

Great White Sharks

These amazing but misunderstood giants of the deep can be found in coastal waters all around South Australia. Book in for a cage dive with one of the reputable tour operators located around the coast – the safest way to see these beauties in their natural habitat.


Sure to top most lists of the cutest critter in Australia, you’ll find many places to meet and even hold one of these iconic mammals while in South Australia. Gorge Wildlife Park in Cudlee Creek, just outside Adelaide, is a popular spot. Meet the Koalas of Mikkira Station


Swim With Sea Lions


These playful creatures are a joy to swim with and are found in their greatest numbers along the South Australia coast (populations have sadly been declining for a while). Help protect them by signing up for a swimming session at Baird Bay on the Eyre Peninsula.

Another quintessential Australian staple, the bouncy kangaroo can be found hanging out on the beach over on Kangaroo Island, just off the coast near Adelaide. The clue is in the name.


They may not be the cutest guys around but these ‘ships of the desert’ are your perfect partner while exploring the rugged country of the Flinders Ranges. Choose from a single day trip to a 9 day adventure trek to fully appreciate these amazing creatures.
