3. Adelaide

The city of Adelaide offers a variety of things to see and do. If you’re a history lover, you’ll appreciate the many museums and galleries displaying indigenous artwork and historic paintings.

For more flora and fauna, we suggest visiting the Adelaide Botanic Gardens or Adelaide Zoo. Both options are perfect for families travelling with young children.

5. Farina ghost town

Farina is an abandoned township in the South Australian outback. Located at the desert’s rim, Farina is situated along the old Ghan railway.

Despite volunteers’ efforts to restore it, this town remains deserted. Boards are displayed within house-wrecks to inform tourists of its history. We suggest walking through the town, visiting the Anzac memorial site and exploring the old cemetery.
