While regional holidays have recently been given the go-ahead, most of us aren’t able to drop everything and run away into the wide-ranging beauty of South Australia immediately.
The South Australian Tourism Commission launched #SATV for this exact reason. From professional star-gazers to gin distillers, world-class chefs and shark cage divers, travel online throughout South Australia and support your favourite operator through this challenging time.
You can expect fresh video content each week so that you can learn from our tourism folk, ask questions (as if you were on tour), or “kick back” somewhere in the great outdoors.
We’ve had a look through all the #SATV episodes until now and put together a list of our favourites, sorted into categories depending on what you’re looking for — from tranquil immersion into stunning scenery to cooking classes with Adelaide’s best chefs.
