Public Holidays- Did You Know Labour Day for Qld Is Now In October, Not In May?

Business owners, especially the self employed,  have a lot to deal with as a business. So knowing when public holidays are coming up is generally not at the top of the priority list. But it does affect a lot of businesses, in the way of staff availability, completion of projects and jobs, planning meetings and timing of bank payments. Not knowing when a public holiday is on can be costly to business, not to mention embarrassing if you publicise the wrong date!

Here are the links for Public Holidays in each state. If you need the Queensland Public Holidays, the Justice Departments website has a great feature to the right which you can click to Subscribe to their calendar to add to yours to be kept constantly up to date with Queensland’s Public Holidays. South Australia also has the ability to be kept up to date via emails, but also subscribes you to other email notifications.

  1. Yes Leesa. But that is why I found the Qld Public Holiday Subscriber such a great tool. Any changes to Public Holidays are automatically fed from the website to your calendar. last year we had the Queens Diamond Jubilee which was a Public Holiday that we ordinarily wouldn’t consider. Other common public Holidays are Show Holidays etc that are specific to a particular region. Business will usually have to consider these for staff, which are usually written into their Awards conditions.
