UTC: +9:30 INTL DIALLING CODE: +61 8 SOUTH AUSTRALIA IS located in the southern central part of Australia. It covers some of the most arid parts of the continent. It is bordered to the west by Western Australia, to the north by the Northern Territory and Queensland, to the east by NSW and Victoria, and the south coast is flanked by the Great Australian Bight and the Southern Ocean. The majority of its people reside in the state capital, Adelaide, with most of the remainder settled in fertile areas along the south-eastern coast and Murray River. The state's origins were unique in Australia as a freely-settled, planned British province rather than a convict settlement. The aim was to establish the province as a centre of civilisation for free immigrants, promising civil liberties and religious tolerance. Although its history is marked by economic hardship, South Australia has remained politically innovative and culturally vibrant. Today, the state is known as a state of festivals and of fine wine. The state's economy centres on the agricultural, manufacturing and mining industries and has an increasingly significant finance sector as well. The principal industries and exports of South Australia are wheat, wool and wine; more than half of Australia's wines are produced there in the famous Barossa and McLaren Vale regions. Superyachts can find ample berthing and other facilities available in various locations in the state, which is the traditional home of a huge tuna fishing industry and other commercial maritime operations. The coast of South Australia offers visiting superyachts some of the world's most spectacular scenery, fishing and diving opportunities. It is the home of the Great White Shark which has generated a unique and unforgettable cage-diving experience famous the world over. South Australia is best visited during the summer months when weather conditions are more suited to superyacht cruising.
