The Minister for Finance of the Australian territory of Norfolk Island, Timothy John Sheridan, has gazetted the official annual list of non-working public holidays in Norfolk Island for the upcoming calendar year 2016.

The Norfolk Island 2016 public holidays list, published in the Norfolk Island Government Gazette No. 13 in accordance with section 9 of the Employment Act 1988, includes the date of the Norfolk Island Agricultural Show Day public holiday as well as the date of the Queen's Birthday public holiday, as was done for the last six years (2014-05-05, 2013-06-30, 2012-07-30, 2011-06-07, 2010-07-24 and 2009-09-04), though, in some years, these Norfolk Island public holidays' dates were listed separately (2008-09-05).

Interestingly, in the aforementioned annual list of non-working public holidays in Norfolk Island for the upcoming calendar year 2016, the annual Norfolk Island public holiday for Foundation Day is set on a Sunday, with no day in lieu public holiday in Norfolk Island on the following Monday, contrary to what happened in 2010 for the subsequent year's list of official public holidays in Norfolk Island (2010-08-19 and 2010-07-24).
