Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

A Heads up to the neighbourhood, if you are going to want bikes or scooters for Christmas we are now recommending you put your order in early to avoid disappointment.
