The many South Australia public holidays in 2018 afford locals and tourist alike an opportunity to explore the state of South Australia. From Adelaide, with its abundance of historic church buildings, to the scenic beauty of the state’s vast outback region to the north and west.
Long weekends on the 2018 calendar to plan for include: the Australia Day Weekend with the holiday falling on Friday, January 26th; the Queen’s Birthday Weekend on June 11th, the holiday as usual falling on a Monday; and a potential five-day Christmas Weekend with Christmas Day on a Tuesday, Boxing Day on the following Wednesday, and the intervening Monday being a logical day to take off with annual leave.
The cosy holiday town of Ceduna is located near Murat Bay, so you can expect to encounter marvellous maritime views and sparkling blue waters.
Situated in the remote wilderness of South Australia's outback, Lake Eyre is a destination that inspires even well-travelled poets and artists.
