The Department of Justice and Attorney-General of Australia's State of Queensland has issued a revised list of the dates of the annual non-working public holidays for 2016 in Australia's State of Queensland.

The aforementioned change relates to the Royal Queensland Show (observed in the Brisbane Area Only) and relates to the exceptions to the annual dates in years when the first Friday of August is prior to August 5th.

The aforementioned announcement also mentions the plans by the new Queensland government (2015-02-15, 2015-03-13 and 2015-03-17) whereby, beginning in 2016, Labour Day non-working public holiday will be held on the first Monday of May, and the Queen's Birthday non-working public holiday will be held on the first Monday in October, but this is just a mention ("The government has announced from 2016, Labour Day will be celebrated on the first Monday in May and the Queen's Birthday public holiday on the first Monday in October. The government has stated its intention to enact these dates via legislation."), with the actual dates being those according to the last change of the dates of the Labour Day and Queen's Birthday non-working public holidays (2011-12-03, 2011-11-08, 2011-11-05, 2012-09-11, 2012-08-20 and 2012-06-12).
