Easter Good Friday and Easter Monday

Note: If these days fall on a weekend, the holiday is usually celebrated the following Monday. In addition, there are several individual state holidays.
The Australian school year is divided into 4 terms and school holiday dates vary from state to state. The summer months, in particular the weeks over Christmas / New Year, are peak holiday season for Australians. It is therefore advisable to book accommodation and touring well in advance over this period.
