Australian Queensland Public Holidays Amended
 
(Posted on Tuesday, October 30, 2012)

Source: Department of Justice and Attorney-General (State of Queensland)

The Department of Justice and Attorney-General of Australia's State of Queensland has announced the amendments to the Holidays Act 1983 had finally been passed by the Parliament of Queensland, meaning that from 2013 onward, the dates of the Birthday of the Sovereign (Queen's Birthday) public holiday and of the Labour Day public holiday would be changed.

The list of Queensland state public holidays for 2013 and beyond will therefore take into account the recently-announced reversal (11-Sep-2012, 20-Aug-2012, and 12-Jun-2012) of last year's move of the Queen's Birthday public holiday to the month of October (03-Dec-2011, 08-Nov-2011, and 05-Nov-2011).

As per Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie, "The Queen's Birthday public holiday will now be consistent with all other states and territories with the exception of Western Australia." and "The changes will break-up the concentration of public holidays that generally fall in the April-May period and give workers a break in the second half of the year.".
