The New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has released an updated list of the 2023-2024 public holidays in New Zealand, including the actual dates of the new Matariki public holiday, for these 2 years.

An initial list of non-working public holidays in New Zealand for the calendar years 2023-2024, had been released by the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, a couple of months ago (2021-05-21).

But that initial list of New Zealand public holidays for 2023-2024 had two failings.

For one, it was missing the 2023 and 2024 dates for the new Matariki public holiday, which will begin in 2022 (2021-02-04). This was expected, as the Matariki Advisory Group, comprising experts in mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge), only released the list of 2023-2052 dates for the Matariki public holiday, earlier this month (2021-07-01).

Additionally, the list of 2023-2024 public holidays in New Zealand included incorrect revised dates for the 2021 and 2022 Canterbury Anniversary Day public holidays. These were recently corrected (2021-07-02).
