Australian Public Holidays

Public Holidays and Special Occasions


Australia Day
Australia day is celebrated in every state of Australia. Its great to be Australian and on this public holiday there are plenty of events held around the country to celebrate. For more information about events held on Australia Day, please visit:
www.australiaday.gov.au


Valentines Day
In Australia, gifts of love are exchanged on Valentines Day. The 14th February each year is the day on which lovers express their love for each other - sending Valentine's cards, roses, chocolates, and gifts often anonymously.

Easter
In Australia there is a public holiday on Good Friday and Easter Monday providing families with the time to have fun together, do family activities and travel away on holidays . On Good Friday, every shop is closed and it is the only day of the year that newspapers are unavailable. In Australia there are many Easter festivals held thoughout the Easter break.

Anzac Day
ANZAC- Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
Anzac day is when Australians come together and spend time remembering the sacrifices of those who died in war protecting our country. Anzac day in Australia is the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.



Mother's Day
Mothers Day in Australia is a special day for mothers where families often get together. Some may get breakfast in bed, others gifts of roses and flowers - all a sign of appreciation and love. For some great gift ideas for Mother's Day visit: www.achievesuccess.com.au/mothers_day

Queens Birthday
The Queen's Birthday is celebrated as a public holiday in Australia. The date of the celebration is on the second monday in June each year. The real birthday of Queen Elizabeth II is the 21 April 1926

Australians celebrate the Queens Birthday in June because if a public holiday was held on 21 April each year, it would coincide with Easter in many years and also be positioned very close to Anzac Day.


Fathers Day
Fathers Day in Australia is a chance for families to get together and celebrate in similar way to Mothers Day. Dads are spoilt and made to feel special. In Australia and New Zealand, fathers are honored the first Sunday in September. Other countries celebrate fathers throughout the year.

"By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually
has a son who thinks he's wrong."
Charles Wadsworth



Melbourne Cup Day
Melbourne Cup Day is a public holiday for the Melbourne metropolitan area, and is Australia's major horse racing event .

Christmas Day
Christmas Day in Australia is often spent with family . Gatherings of friends and families centred around food - whether it is a traditional christmas lunch, or an Aussie style event with prawns on the BBQ everyone looks forward to this time of year.


Boxing Day
Boxing Day in Australia is a public holiday that falls the day after christmas. Boxing Day originated in England where the day after Christmas Day was spent "boxing" gifts and giving them to the less fortunate. A quiet day is often spent recovering from the lead up to Christmas and the festivities of Christmas Day by watching the Cricket (Boxing Day Test match) or the Sydney to Hobart Yacht race on TV. Many Australians also head off on holidays or prepare for the next celebration - New Years Eve!

New Years Day / New Years Eve
New Years Eve is often celebrated in Australia by partying in large groups at public venues with fireworks going off at midnight. All of the major cities in Australia have events organised to help celebrate the transition from one year to the next. New Years Day is a Public Holiday.

Labour Day
The Labour Day Holiday date is different for each State of Australia and is set by their respective state and territory governments. Labour Day in Ausralia has its origins in the eight hour day movement - their efforts resulted in the introduction of eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for sleep.

Note: The Labour Day Holiday date is different for each State of Australia and is set by their respective state and territory governments. Some of the dates for public holidays (such as the Queens Birthday) may vary from state to state in Australia - please make sure you check the above dates with your own states public holidays before booking any holidays.

Canberra Day
Canberra Day is a public holiday in the Australian Capital Territory and is observed on the second Monday of March each year.  The day commemorates Canberra’s official founding way back in 1913.  It is highlighted by a major festival that takes part in Canberra. Canberra Day is a public holiday in the ACT with many businesses closing for the day.

Eight Hours Day
The Eight Hours Day was introduced to Tasmanians in March 2006.  In 1874, Tasmania became the last State of Australia to earn the shorter working day.

Foundation Day
Foundation Day is a uniquely Western Australian public holiday. It commemorates the day that the first European settlers arrived in Western Australia to found the Swan River Colony on 1 June 1829. Foundation Day is held on the first Monday in June each year.
