These dates may be modified as official changes are announced.
UPCOMING PUBLIC HOLIDAYS 2018
Wednesday April 25 - Anzac Day
Grabbing an end of April holiday is pretty easy. If you go all the way and take four days leave, you're looking at a nine day holiday with Anzac Day smack bang in the middle.
Monday May 7 - Labour Day
Friday May 18 - Ipswich Show Day (Wednesday Aug 15 - Ekka*)
Monday Oct 1 - Queen's Birthday
Tuesday Dec 25 - Christmas Day + Wednesday Dec 26 - Boxing Day
With Christmas Day on a Tuesday and Boxing Day on the Wednesday, many locals will simply take the Monday off and gain a five-day holiday weekend.
Queenslanders might also want to book in leave early for 2019 to take advantage of a string of public holidays.
