A survey conducted by the Department of Premier and Cabinet of the State Government of Australia's State of Victoria, concerning possible changes to the ANZAC Day public holiday, in view of reflecting the frontier conflicts between Indigenous people and early settlers, was approved by only a third of respondents.
Last summer (2017-08-06), in neighboring NSW, the Shadow Minister for Human Services of the Labor Party of Australia's State of New South Wales, Linda Burney, announced that, in the event of a victory by the Labor Party in the 2019 NSW state elections, the government of New South Wales would declare a new non-working public holiday to celebrate the culture, people and heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
