Easter Tuesday in Australia

In the celebration of Easter, each day after the resurrection is another Easter celebrated in simple ways. The extension of Easter celebration only signifies that the praising of the Christian community does not stop on the resurrection of Jesus Christ alone. Each little celebration following the Easter Sunday is a call to celebrate Jesus Christ’s promise of his rising from the dead.

What is Easter Tuesday in Australia?

Easter Tuesday is a regional or state holiday in Tasmania, Australia’s only island state. Easter Tuesday is a part of Easter Weekend in Tasmania, so offices and some establishments are closed during this time. The state of traffic is not affected; however, there are transport companies who also opt to not operate on this day in Tasmania. There are also no classes on Easter Tuesday, so schools in Tasmania are closed during this period. Regular working day applies outside Tasmania and the rest of Australia.

How People in Australia Practice Easter Tuesday?

People in Tasmania see the Easter Weekend as an opportunity to slow things down. Since the children here do not have classes on Easter weekend, it is the ideal time to check-in in resorts or recreational destinations that are meant for relaxation, fun, and unwinding.

Travel becomes in demand during this period as well. Locals of Tasmania can manage to go out of the country for a short vacation and leisure, or go to other parts of Australia to explore the country’s beaches and countryside. The hotels all over Australia become in demand during the Easter weekend. Easter Tuesday is the time when they will fly back to their homes in Tasmania.

Easter Tuesday is also when people await the results of one of Tasmania’s popular sporting event, the Tasmania Three Peak Race. The event is Australia’s sailing and endurance running event which kicks off on Good Friday and lasts up to Easter Tuesday. Fans of this event are glued on their televisions to update themselves on the result of the race.

Easter Tuesday in Tasmania is also one of the in-demand dates for special occasions and gatherings such as weddings, baptismal, birthday celebrations, and other similar occasions. Being part of the Easter weekend and a holiday as well, many guests are most likely to attend the event, which makes this day a very popular day for gatherings and get-togethers.

Outside the island of Tasmania and in other parts of Australia, Easter Tuesday is a regular working day. The public offices, government departments and establishments such as shops and restaurants are open for service and business. The transport companies proceed to their regular operations, and local and international flights are not obstructed during the Easter Tuesday.
