Australian Victoria 2016 Public Holidays Completed
 
(Posted on Saturday, November 7, 2015)

The State Government of Australia's State of Victoria has officially completed the list of official non-working public holidays in Australia's State of Victoria for the calendar year 2016, with the specific date of the "Friday before the AFL Grand Final" non-working public holiday in Australia's State of Victoria for the calendar year 2016.

Four years ago (17-Jul-2011), then leader of the opposition of Australia's State of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, had announced that he would support the push for an extra public holiday to celebrate AFL Grand Final week, if he became premier. Shortly after his election, late last year (01-Dec-2014 08-Jul-2015), as the Premier-elect of the State Government of Australia's State of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, announced that he would make good on his promise by the publication of their declaration in the Government Gazette (as opposed to a possibly lengthy parliamentary debate).

The officialization of these 2 new public holidays in Australia's State of Victoria, thus amended the list of official non-working public holidays in Australia's State of Victoria for the period of 2016 and 2017, as released by the State Government of Australia's State of Victoria (22-Oct-2015 and 17-Mar-2014), with the addition of an entry with "Date TBC" for 2016 and 2017, initially, though today's announcement sets the 2016 date.
