Long Weekend Love

Everybody loves a long weekend and there’s a bit on around Adelaide to make this one even more enjoyable. The ANZAC Day weekend is a welcome break from the regular five day working week and, with the next long weekend not until July, it’s best to savour this one while it is here!

Whether you typically spend this weekend waking up before sunrise for the Dawn Service or start up a home renovation that you’ve been putting off for too long, there’s something for everyone to experience. We’ve rounded up the best events on all over Adelaide to keep you occupied over the three day weekend.
