Victorian Public Holidays

In Australia, Public holidays are either recognized nationally or by the respective states. Nonetheless it's up to the particular states to make a decision if public holidays could be replaced, when they come up on weekends. Normally, most states allocate extra public holidays if Australia Day, New Years Day, ANZAC Day, Boxing Day, or Christmas Day falls on a Sunday or Saturday. For example, Australia day which had fallen on January 26, a Saturday, has been replaced to occur on January 28, a Monday, as per the Victorian public holiday list 2013.

Barring the National Public Holidays, the Territories and States independently proclaim all other public holidays for example Labour Day, Agricultural Show day holidays and Queen's Birthday. Victoria consists of a connection to non-metropolitan public holiday dates, for instance Show days and local Cup.

Conventionally, workers, private or public, were permitted to take a public holiday off with normal pay. In recent times this practice has altered to some extent. For instance, a business that is normally open on public holidays might appeal to employees for working on the day, and negation can be denied by the employer only on logical business reasons.

Australia has a fairly temperate nature of climate; so only just three-day weekends become a great reason to have a break. Usually people would head to the seashore, lakes, or mountains. Furthermore in winter season the snowfields in Victoria and southern New South Wales are sure to be full of activity on public holiday weekends.

The customs of Australia, regardless of the personal family legacy, is very nonchalant. Here holidays are an occasion for grouping with friends and family and being comfortable.
