Your only real choice unless you know someone with private land would be Goolwa beach, unfortunatley you can not access the Murray river mouth anymore due to the dredging operations.

Its an easy drive and the sand can be very hard, but it is soft in places, it is worth letting down your tyres to around 16 psi as vehicles have gotten stuck before. If you dont have a compressor you can drive very slow back to the servo on the main road.

Deep Creek has some very tame tracks down to blow hole beach and a nice view over to Kangaroo Island. Boat harbours beach is worth a look also.
If you want something challenging you have to head north or over to the west coast around Coffin Bay. Down near Robe some good beach / dune driving can be found.
Most tracks have been closed off every where else due to 4WD hating public / media or the greenies who drive water powered paper mache cars.

The last couple of times I have been down to Goolwa beach it is now open to the Murray Mouth (the most recent time was about 2 months ago).

I know a place you can go to and drive around for 4 - 5 hrs and still not do all the tracks..
Rocky hills tracks, sandy tracks, tracks you will only get up with diff locks and ones which will test your vehicle..
And the rest are just good ol 4x4 tracks...1.6hrs from Adelaide...

email me for info..... gqpatrol@bigponddotnetdotau

Iit all depends on your skill level and vehicle as much as anything else. Go out to Saunders Gorge, East of Mt Pleasant for 3 hours on a mini Flinders Ranges. There are several tracks around Oroorroo such as The Horseshoe and Horseshoe Rim, Bendleby Ranges has plenty of good tracks as well and there are several other private properties and tracks. The RAA map of the Southern Flinders and Clare Valley shows them all, along with contact details.

Loveday 4x4 adventure Park in the Riverland offers some interesting stuff as well.

The Border Track offers some interesting country if it is open

So there is plenty around 2-3 hours drive from Adelaide.
