The South Australian Government has announced that it plans to review and amend the official legislation governing non-working public holidays in the Australian state of South Australia.

The aforementioned changes to the current Holidays Act 1910 (SA) would include part-day public holidays on Christmas Eve (December 24) and New Years Eve (December 31) as well as the removal of Sundays from the definition of what constitutes a non-working public holiday in the Australian state of South Australia.

The last change to the official list of non-working public holiday in the Australian state of South Australia was in 2006, when the government of South Australia gazetted a change in the date of the Adelaide Cup Day and related public holiday in the "Holidays (Adelaide Cup) Proclamation 2006" (published in the Gazette on 31 August 2006 at page 3062), whereby the 2007 Adelaide Cup public holiday was moved from May to March (2006-08-31 and 2006-07-12) where it has stayed since then (2010-07-15, 2011-01-24, and 2011-03-14).
