What’s On over the Easter Long Weekend in Adelaide

If you’re staying in Adelaide over the Easter long weekend or planning to visit one of our beautiful regional areas, you will be spoilt for choice with a fabulous selection of family friendly events and activities on offer.

Easter falls on the last weekend of March this year, a couple of weeks before the South Australian Autumn school holidays.  The extra long weekend is a great opportunity to take some time out as a family, either relaxing at home or out and about exploring our wonderful state.  Head to the hills for a day trip, go camping along the coast or venture further out and spend a few days in one of our regional areas.
