School Holidays 2017 and 2018
Scroll down to choose school holiday dates by state (alphabetical).
The dates of school terms and holidays in Australia are determined by the respective education departments of each state and territory.
While each jurisdiction follows the same four-term-per-year model, the start and end date of each term can vary by more than a week from state to state.
A very popular school holiday period of the year for travel is the autumn break, which is between Term 1 and Term 2 and usually coincides with Easter. Equally popular for travel is the Christmas/Summer school holiday break that generally runs for 5-6 weeks – the longest break in the school calendar.
