There is no additional holiday for ANZAC Day even though it falls on a weekend.

In 2021 both Christmas Day and Boxing Day fall on a weekend, so there is an additional public holiday on Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th December.

*The AFL Grand Final Holiday is subject to the AFL schedule remaining unchanged. It may change if there are COVID related restrictions that prevent the season from continuing with its current schedule.

**Melbourne Cup Day is not a public holiday in all areas. Some regions observe a different holiday for Melbourne Cup instead. Regional or non-metropolitan holidays are published throughout the year. Please check back at a later date for more details if your region is missing.
