Culture of South Australia

The Barossa Valley is a significant wine producing region and a popular tourist destination.

The culture of South Australia reflects the culture of Australia as a whole. The state has a variety of wine producing regions including the popular tourist destination Barossa Valley. The majority of the population is focused in and around the Adelaide metropolitan area. The geographical landmass varies widely, and a significant portion of Adelaide's terrain is hilly. The Adelaide Hills features many European villages and small towns which reflect the states immigration trends in the 1880s. Sport is integral to the Australian identity and South Australia is no exception. The state has the second highest rate of event attendance of all states and territories with 49% of South Australians aged 15 years and over attending a sporting event each year.[1]

The internationally acclaimed Picnic at Hanging Rock was filmed in the rural areas of the state.
