Queensland Public Holidays

In Australia, public holidays can be either public or state based. In case any public holiday falls on a weekend, the states have full authority to decide whether to substitute it with another day. As in several other parts of the globe, in Australia, the summer season is the most luxuriant time for public holidays. Starting from the New Years Day through to Christmas Day, people can even have a ten-day break with barely one or two days of their annual leave being affected.

In Australia, workers have struggled for and won a series of significant holiday and leave entitlements that are amongst the finest in the world. In recent time unions have effectively safeguarded public holiday pay and paid annual leave of four weeks from being curtailed under the former unwarranted WorkChoices laws of the Howard Government.

The second largest state in Australia is Queensland; it has a population of about 4.5 million. It is situated in the north eastern region of the country. The state presents a remarkable collection of varied experiences throughout its numerous regions.

Every Queensland looks forward to Queensland public holidays. It provides them with a chance to get out with their kids, hopping, and enjoying the company of each other. Since Australia is a constituent of the Commonwealth of Nations, The Queen's Birthday is celebrated as a public holiday here, with the sovereign of the United Kingdom being considered the monarch. The day is celebrated on the second Monday of June in a major part of Australia. Post offices, schools, and other institutions are closed on this date in most parts of Australia. Many stores also have restricted opening hours on the day.
