Tasmania, you love a good public holiday. But who wouldn’t love ditching work to commemorate something that you may or may not give a flop about? Bring on the public holiday dates in Tasmania in 2022! Whatever the date, we’ve got unions (and Queen Lizzy having a birthday) to thank for the amount of annual leave and public holidays Aussies enjoy.
Anyway… you’re here, you’re smart and it looks like you’re planning ahead! Be it the result of some long weekend getaway forethought, or for fair public holiday wage planning, these dates will be a big help for an optimised 2022.
Perhaps you’re a savvy planner and you’re here to figure out which days to request off to turn seven days of annual leave into 18 or so days of holiday. Let this list help you. To beat the rest of the office to the manager with annual leave forms? Well… you’re on your own for that.
Also, you might want to consider moving to Victoria because there they have the most public holidays. Those lucky devils.
