What’s Open in Adelaide over the June Long Weekend?
The June long weekend will look a little different this year with so many cancelled and postponed events, but there is still plenty to do in and around Adelaide. With the second stage of restrictions easing from June 1st we will see a lot more venues opening, including museums, cafes and restaurants, galleries and outdoor activity centres. Remember certain restrictions are still in place and social distancing rules still apply.
Winter is still a wonderful time to get out and explore our wonderful state, so make the most of the extra day off work and school and celebrate the long weekend with family and friends.
