The South Australian June Long Weekend is here! And with COVID-19 restrictions still in place we thought we’d make it easy for you to find something to do. It’s not too late to book a camping trip, or you could plan a family bushwalk, bike ride, visit a new playground or just stay in and get through that list of must see family movies you didn’t finish during iso or get busy in the garden.
Some of the businesses below will require booking so please click the links for more info.
