FOUR DAYS OFF! What do you do? Where do you start? Arrghhh - so many Easter eggs, so little time! While we’re not suggesting that drowning yourself in chocolate this long weekend is a bad idea, there’s a whole lot of other ways you and the fam bam could spend your time off.
In Adelaide, we’re lucky to have regional areas within such easy reach, meaning that long weekends can consist of charming day trips and sight-seeing at some of our states best events. How about a rock, blues and roots music festival in Clare Valley? Or getting involved in the harvest time festivities in our wine regions? Whether it’s sport, food, wine, art, culture or music you’re looking for this weekend, Adelaide can provide it for you. Basically, our state turns into a big chocolatey mess – wrapped in bright foil ready for you to enjoy!
