The Government of the Australian State of South Australia has released its annual list of official non-working public holidays in the Australian State of South Australia for the calendar year 2016.

The aforementioned list of official non-working public holidays in the Australian State of South Australia for the calendar year 2016 follows a quiet year in terms of public holidays changes, as compared to the previous 12 month period (2013-02-13, 2012-12-10, 2012-09-13, 2012-07-23, and 2012-03-22, and 2012-03-04).

Interestingly, the aforementioned announcement of South Australian public holidays for 2016 does refer to last year's statement (2013-02-13) by Industrial Relations Minister of South Australia, John Rau, that, despite lobbying by the South Australian Jockey Club, the second Monday of March non-working public holiday (often referred to as Adelaide Cup Day) would remain in March until 2015, at least, and extends the rule, without further comment to 2016.
