South Australia featured in Vogue’s Top Destinations for Summer
The accolades for South Australia keep rolling in, with Vogue.com the latest publication to list South Australia in their top ten travel list.
The article published on Friday 26 May 2017, lists South Australia as the top third destination out of ten places around the world to travel to in summer.
To compile the list, Vogue reached out to their resident travel experts to share their ‘favourite and unexpected summer vacation destinations’ with South Australia the list’s only Australian destination.
South Australia is featured among nine other international cities and countries, including Sifnos (Greece), Faroe Islands (North Atlantic Ocean), Portugal, Aland Islands (Finland), Copenhagen (Denmark), Tofino (British Columbia), Namibia, Komodo Islands (Indonesia) and Baja California (Mexico).
The article’s author, Leiti Hsu, notes the impressive food and wine offering in South Australia as well as the regions’ proximity to Adelaide as a key driver of the listing with SA described as the ‘foodie state’ of Australia.
“Just an hour-drive away is the Barossa Valley, which makes some of the country’s finest wines from some of the world’s oldest vines.
Right in town is the original Penfolds Magill Estate, and 20 minutes outside of town is the Basket Range wine region, which is leading the country’s natural winemaking movement,” says Leiti.
With uninterrupted coastline and crowd-free beaches, world-class restaurants showcasing South Australia’s fresh produce and seemingly limitless wine experiences, it’s no surprise South Australia is listed as the place-to-be this summer.
Vogue’s summer travel list helps bolster South Australia’s reputation as a not-to-be-missed destination and firmly cements South Australia’s position as a world-class food and wine haven.
South Australia is also proud to feature in Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Regions to Visit in 2017 list, to be the No.1 Place to Be in 2017 by emerging travel website Trip.com and ranked the world’s 5th most Liveable City by the Economist Intelligence.
