The Administrator of Australia's Indian Ocean Territories, Barry Haase, has signed the "Community Bulletin A38/2015 and Gazette 03-2015 for Christmas Island" which officially gazettes the annual bank holidays and public holidays on Christmas Island for the upcoming calendar year 2016.
The aforementioned listing was gazetted in the Proclamation - Special and Bank Holidays 2016 Territory of Christmas Island (No. 03/2015).
In 2016, contrary to what was the case in some previous years (21-Aug-2014, 27-Sep-2013, 13-Aug-2008, 14-Aug-2007, and 31-Aug-2000), there will be no conflict between two of the Christmas Island public holidays, avoiding the required tinkering with the public holidays dates on Christmas Island.
