South Australia's Industrial Relations Minister, Paul Holloway, has announced that the government of Australia's State of South Australia had declared Tuesday, April 26, 2011, as a one-off public holiday.

This declaration, due to the fact that Anzac Day falls on Easter Monday for the first time ever, follows a similar move by Western Australia, earlier this month (2010-07-01), and is in line with last year's CAF Agreement (2009-01-15), which set out to harmonize the treatment of the ANZAC Day public holiday, across all Australian states and territories, when ANZAC Day falls on a Sunday, or another public holiday.

All other Australian states are expected to follow suit, even Tasmania, which did not follow the CAF guidelines in 2010 (2009-04-18), but which will, de facto, in 2011 as Easter Tuesday is a State public holiday in Tasmania.
