If you’re looking for an extended long weekend this year then Friday, 26 April 2024 is looking like a favourite with workers throughout Australia.
In 2024 ANZAC Day falls on Thursday, 25 April and this makes for an awkward single day back at work before the weekend. You can be certain that your colleagues will eye off this date as a cheeky way to give themselves an extra long 4 day weekend.
There are not really any opportunities to gain bulk time off work without using too much of your holiday leave in 2024. The year 2025 shapes as the best year to grab some bulk time off with the ability to take 10 days off whilst only using 3 days of annual leave. The bulk leave opportunities usually arise due to the Easter holidays moving each year. On occasion they land in a favourable place that is close to other public holidays such as ANZAC Day.
