Information presented is from South Australia Government sources


Every Sunday in South Australia is nominally a public holiday under the Holidays Act 1910 (SA).

The Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve part-day public holidays (from 7pm til midnight) came into effect in South Australia in April 2012.

South Australia is unique in that the public holiday on 26th of December is called Proclamation Day. Proclamation Day celebrates the establishment of government in South Australia as a British province. Other states in Australia refer to this date as Boxing Day. There is a Proclamation Day in Western Australia but it's not a public holiday.
