The Attorney-General of the Australian State of Queensland, Jarrod Bleijie, has issued a communiqué announcing that as per last fall's amendments to the Holidays Act 1983, the Labour Day public holiday, in the State of Queensland, was no longer in May as it had been moved to the first Monday in October.

Last fall (2012-10-30), the Department of Justice and Attorney-General of Australia's State of Queensland had announced 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 did therefore take into account the recently-announced reversal (2012-09-11, 2012-08-20, and 2012-06-12) of last year's move of the Queen's Birthday public holiday to the month of October (2011-12-03, 2011-11-08, and 2011-11-05).
