Explore the Adelaide Central Markets and take a gastronomic tour and taste the many delights from many produce stalls. The Market is open from Tuesday to Saturday every week and you will find a huge range of fresh food, all under one roof. It’s the best place to get all your provisions and stock up the fridge in your motorhome before you start your self-drive holiday in South Australia.
Get close and personal with the Pandas at the Adelaide Zoo. Join the tour and meet Wang Wang and Funi (the only giant pandas in the southern hemisphere) for a behind the scenes experience. Finish off the day visiting the rest of the zoo with its 300 or more native and exotic species, with over 1,800 animals on site. There are enclosures providing visitors the jungle experience with Sumatran Tigers and Orangutans.
Take a motorhome rental drive up to Handorf, Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement in the Adelaide Hills. There is still a strong German influence in the area with a number of smallgoods outlets and German bakeries in the main street. You can pick strawberries (in season) at Beerenberg and the young ones will enjoy a day with the friendly animals at Hahndorf Farm Barn, part farmyard and part nature wildlife park.
The Barossa Valley is famous for its wineries and gourmet produce. This region is surrounded by vineyards and there are more than eight wineries on its doorstep and many more just a short motorhome drive away. Enjoy the cellar door tastings and sales and dine at the many local restaurants where fresh local produce is matched with delicious local wines. Drive your motorhome hire vehicle to the Barrossa Valley and enjoy.
Every 2 years the biennial Barossa Vintage Festival (largest and longest running wine tourism festival) is held during Easter. This festival features the rich diversity of the Barossa region and celebration of wine, food, music, art and culture with many events staged over the long holidays. Highlight of the festival is the Grand Parade featuring over 100 decorated floats.
Kangaroo Island is Australia's third largest island. Drive your rental motorhome south to Cape Jervis for a short 45 minutes ferry from the mainland. Four daily departures with additional services during peak season. Board your motorhome hire onto the ferry and spend a few days to discover this wildlife sanctuary with its natural and rugged scenery. Kangaroo Island vast 2250 square kilometres has been spared the damage from the impact of European settlers plus due to lack of predatory animal i.e. foxes and rabbits – the animal and bird populations thrived in this region. There are several conservation parks where you will discover New Zealand fur seals and Australian sea lions and koalas all in a protected natural environment.
Every first Sunday of the month there is a Farmers market run by local food producers where you can purchase a range of local produce from the producers themselves.

This depends on the vehicle you hire as the insurance cover for each vehicle is different. Generally, we have two packages for all vehicles – “Standard and Inclusive”.

This amount is required to be paid on pick-up as a security bond and is refundable when the vehicle is return undamaged. In an event of an accident this will be the maximum amount you are liable for.
