In determining local public holiday entitlements, employees/employers should consider the terms of the relevant industrial instrument (ie award, agreement or employment contract) and the National Employment Standards under the Fair Work Act 2009.

Local public holidays and half day holidays that have been declared by Order are published on the NSW legislation website and are listed below. As the declared local public holidays are published, this list will be updated to reflect the additional holidays.
