What people are saying about South Australia

The climb at Adelaide oval was so much better than expected. The views are stunning, the climb itself relatively easy with plenty of stops along the way to soak up the views in all directions. The guide was great and full of knowledge about not just the oval but all of Adelaide and the history. I felt very safe in the harness and the staff gave clear instructions about the safely. Overall it was a great experience that I’ll be recommending to friends and family. The only down side was that on top of the price which is high but expected you then had to pay extra for the photos taken on the climb. It is not permitted to take you own phone/camera (which is great for safety but also to enjoy it without looking through a screen) but the prices of the photo packages are way to expensive for the quality of photo. I just think ALL photos could be included in ticket price.

A must do if you’re in the Flinders! Our pilot was very knowledgeable both in the Dreamtime stories of Wilpena and surrounds, and the geological aspects of the area. Was absolutely breathtaking to see the Pound from the air, and an ideal way to understand the various walks/drives before undertaking them on the ground. Would definitely recommend

Was the best experience First time seeing the Adelaide oval and I got ask to marry the man of my dreams.

Went with my Mum who is 78 and we both really enjoyed it. Great guide and awesome views!
