With so many long weekends created by Tasmanian public holidays in 2018, there is no good reason not to ferry or fly down to “the land down under the Land Down Under” to experience its rugged wildernesses and many historic and cultural sites.

Holidays that will create an extended weekend in Tasmania in 2018 include: Australia Day (January 26th), which falls on a Monday; Eight Hours Day (March 12th), which is Tasmania’s version of Labour Day and falls on a Monday as usual; and Christmas, which comes on a Tuesday in 2018, with Boxing Day following on Wednesday. By taking off Christmas Eve on Monday, a five-day weekend is created.
