On February 19th in 1836, South Australia was officially proclaimed as state.
South Australia, with it's huge semi-desert areas in the far Outback, is the driest out of all of the states, yet it is also the most urbanised and hosts a range of arts and performance festivals.
These contrasts of beaches, deserts, cities and farmland make South Australia a photographers dream. This week we've selected a range of images showing off the beauty and diversity of this beautiful region. So, as always, enjoy the pic's, take some photos and make sure you share your thoughts in the comments section.
