Largely arid or semi-arid in terms of its climate and geography, South Australia nevertheless boasts several picturesque mountain ranges and grasslands, particularly in its coastal region. Founded in 1836 as a planned colonial province rather than a penal settlement, South Australia has a slightly different modern history than Australia’s other states. Economically prosperous and culturally rich, South Australia boasts a confident, easygoing personality.
