Australian Public Holidays 2012

The majority of Australian public holidays are reported on a state and territory base, except for several holidays that are observed in all states and territories, and are therefore de facto nationwide holidays.

Generally, private and public workers are entitled to take off a public holiday with normal pay, while businesses that are normally open on a public holiday may require employees to work on the day. Usually, in this case, the employees were paid at a penalty rate – usually 1½ (known as “time and a half”) or 2 times (known as “double time”) the regular pay. In recent years this tradition has changed somewhat. Almost all of the entitlement to penalty rates of pay has been decreased or entirely eliminated in lots of work places.

Besides designating days as public holidays, most of these days may also be designated as restricted trading days.

Different from many countries when a public holiday comes on a weekend, the following workday might or might not be considered a public holiday depending on the state/territory and the holiday in question.
