Easter is a time of chocolate, family fun, chocolate, relaxing and more chocolate. As you’ll discover, Adelaide has plenty of each to go around!
Oh, Haigh’s! You big, huggable Australian institution, you. Easter just wouldn’t be Easter without a constant supply of those lovely little chocolate fish, chickens and bilbies Haigh’s whips up, and, it’s still going strong in its 101st year of business. Better still, all products are made from certified sustainable cocoa beans, which makes them as ethical as they are delicious. Everyone wins! Find out more

This time, the chocolate train is coming to you in beer form.

In other words, it’s sensational. Find out more
Long Weekend Holiday
With a full four days off week (who doesn’t love an extra long weekend), there’s no better way to wind down than in world-famous McLaren Vale, one of the winiest places known to man, beast or vegetable. And hey, if you’re not into wine, there’s always the rolling hills, emerald woods, tranquil beaches, fancy restaurants (you can’t go wrong at D’arry’s Verandah), picturesque towns and villages. Expect all-around excellence but don’t forget to bring us back a bottle or two, ok? Find out more
