A visit to South Australia is to taste the good life in all its forms with fresh local produce and delicious wines seen on many a dinner table throughout the state.

Rigoni's on Leigh Street, Adelaide Rigoni's on Leigh Street, Adelaide

Discover exceptional produce at every turn in South Australia – fresh seafood, organic meats, sweet citrus, nuts, baked goods, Ligurian honey, olives, chocolate, world-renowned wines and beers.

Delicious fare, everywhere

Whether dining al fresco in Adelaide or a nibbling on platter of ‘feral food’ in the Flinders Ranges and Outback, visitors are guaranteed to have their taste buds tantalised!

South Australia’s Mediterranean climate makes it perfect for growing olives and almonds, especially on the Fleurieu Peninsula. Kangaroo Island is home to the unique Ligurian bees which produce some of the finest honey in Australia.

The waters off the Eyre Peninsula provide an abundance of seafood including Coffin Bay oysters, bluefin tuna, King George whiting and lobster.

The European influence is most prominent in Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills and the Barossa, with the cooking methods of early German settlers still served today.

South Australia is also renowned throughout the world for its award-winning wines. In fact about half Australia’s wines (many people say the best half) are grown and made in the Barossa, Clare Valley, Fleurieu Peninsula, Limestone Coast, Adelaide Hills and Riverland, along the Murray River.
