Easter Monday

Easter Monday is a public holiday in Australia and will be observed on Monday, the 1st of April 2024.

Easter Monday follows Easter Sunday, a Christian festival that, according to tradition, celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from death. According to the New Testament, this occurred on the third day of his burial in 30AD.

Easter Sunday 2024 Dates, Public Holiday, Stores Open & Church Service

The Easter long weekend in Australia will be celebrated with several public holidays, starting with Good Friday on the 29th of March, Easter Saturday on the 30th of March, Easter Sunday on the 31st of March and Easter Monday on the 1st of April. This creates a 4-day long weekend for Australians, meaning many families use this time to travel and spend time with their family and friends.

Sydneysiders traditionally celebrate the extended Easter Holiday by not eating meat on Good Friday (except fish) and giving chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday.

Even though many stores close on Easter Monday, most supermarkets and shopping centres are open for business. Movie theatres, restaurants, petrol stations and many attractions, including SEA Life Sydney Aquarium, Taronga Zoo and the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb, remain open.
