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.".
