Australian Capital Territory public holidays in 2018 give a unique chance to learn of the nation’s – and of Canberra’s – history and to relax and enjoy nature at area parks and gardens.

Public holiday weekends include: Canberra Day, March 12th, which falls on a Monday; Family and Community Day, September 24th, which is on a Monday as always; and Christmas, which will be on a Tuesday in 2018, with Boxing Day on the following Wednesday. By taking off Christmas Eve for annual leave, you will create for yourself a five-day window for a holiday getaway.
