Holidays and customs in Australia

Updated: Jan 27

In this question and answer series on Sydney, Australia I attempt to answer the big questions that many visitors have.

This video is light-hearted look at some of the holidays and customs here in Australia.

Christmas and Easter are some of the most significant ones observed. A labour day is observed in each state and territory, although it is varied in date. There are two significant national days, Australia Day (26 January) and Anzac Day (25 April), which are nationwide public holidays.

Oh yeah, the Queens Birthday is another holiday! ;)

When a public holiday occurs on a Friday or Monday, the three-day period is colloquially known as a "long weekend".
