The numerous New South Wales public holidays in 2018 give locals and tourists ample opportunity to venture out and explore the natural beauty of this diverse state. From the many beach-towns on the coast, to the interior highlands and rain forests, to the desert plains of the outback, there is no shortage of wonders to discover.
New South Wales also has no shortage of long weekends created by its public holidays repertoire for 2018. The first three-day weekend comes right at the head of the year, with New Year’s Day falling on a Monday. The second one comes later that same month, with Australia Day, which commemorates the first Australian settlement (at Port Jackson, NSW) on January 26th, 1788, falling on a Friday. Later in the year you can look forward to Labour Day, which comes on a Monday as usual on October 1st.
