Queensland Public Holiday Information

In Queensland, Public Holidays can basically be divided into three groups:

    Public Holidays - Qld Wide
    Show Holidays
    Other Holidays

Queensland Public Holidays - Qld Wide

These are the holidays that we all know and love such as Australia Day, ANZAC Day, Queen's Birthday, Labour Day and so on. These holidays are generally held on the same day throughout Queensland.

Show Holidays

Most regions of Queensland have access to some form of Show Holiday. These types of public holiday are much less regimented and the designated day off can change between regions for the same show. The Ekka Holiday (Royal Queensland Show) is a good example where Brisbane City have a different day off to the Gold Coast and even the Moreton Region. This allows the show organisers to avoid huge bottlenecks with everyone trying to attend the show on the same day.

There are a large number of smaller local show holidays throughout various regions of Qld

Other Holidays

From time to time there are one off holidays added to our holiday calendar in special circumstances. A great example was the G20 Summit Public Holiday that was granted to residents within the Brisbane City Council region in 2014.
