Western Australia is the quintessential “outback state” of the continent, and it is filled with adventures waiting to happen and places of great interest just waiting to be explored. The many Western Australia public holidays in 2018 are a perfect opportunity to go on holiday locally, interstate, or even to our overseas neighbours.

Some of the best long weekends in 2018 for touring Western Australia include: Australia Day Weekend, created by Australia Day (January 26th) falling on a Friday; a three-day weekend for Queen’s Birthday (September 24th), which comes on a Monday in 2018; and Christmas, with Christmas Day falling on a Tuesday and Boxing Day falling on a Wednesday. By taking off Christmas Eve for annual leave, a five-day holiday weekend is gained.
