The Administrator of Australia's Indian Ocean Territories, Barry Haase, has signed the "Community Bulletin A15/2016 and Gazette 01-2016 for Christmas Island" which officially gazettes the annual bank holidays and public holidays on Christmas Island for the upcoming calendar year 2017.
The aforementioned listing of the annual bank holidays and public holidays on Christmas Island for the upcoming calendar year 2017, was gazetted in the Proclamation - Special and Bank Holidays 2017 Territory of Christmas Island (No. 01/2016).
In 2017, contrary to what was the case in some previous years (2014-08-21, 2013-09-27, 2008-08-13, 2007-08-14, and 2000-08-31), but not all (2015-08-03), 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.
