Government of South Australia

It’s wonderful to see one of South Australia’s most cherished events – the Adelaide Carols by Candlelight - taking place this year, albeit a little differently.

The global pandemic has presented challenges to virtually everyone, in every household, in every city, in every country.

But COVID-19 has not beaten us.

South Australians have done a remarkable job in staring down some of the greatest challenges of our time.

By working together, we have kept our state safe and strong.

We have supported each other with true South Australian grit, spirit and pride.

If anything, COVID-19 has reminded us not to take things for granted and to appreciate the simple joys in life.

The Adelaide Carols by Candlelight is one such joy. It’s a wonderful tradition that South Australians, both young and old, look forward to every year.

My message to everyone this Christmas is to spend time with loved ones, support our local businesses and take some time to explore the vast beauty of this wonderful state.

Have a safe and merry Christmas.


Premier of South Australia
