Queensland Public Holidays 2021

This page contains a calendar of all 2021 public holidays for Queensland. These dates may be modified as official changes are announced, so please check back regularly for updates.

Note: This holiday has been moved from 11 August 2021 (Wednesday) to 29 October 2021 (Friday) to create a long weekend. The 2021 Royal Queensland Show was cancelled due to the current health situation, leading to this decision to move the Ekka holiday.
