Labour Day

Labour Day is a public holiday in NSW that will be observed on Monday, 7 October 2024, in Sydney.

Labour Day is observed to reflect on the social and political movement back in the 1850s to secure an 8-hour working day for all Australians.

What better way to mark this special day than by taking a day off work! Most Australians get the day off and spend it with their friends. Many people use this long weekend in Spring to go away for the weekend to the blue mountains, head to the beaches, walk along the coast or go camping out in the bush!

As Labour Day is a public holiday, you will find some smaller stores and cafes closed; however, larger supermarkets and shopping malls remain open. Movie theatres remain open, as do restaurants, petrol stations, and many attractions in Sydney, such as the Taronga Zoo, Sydney Sea Life Aquarium, Sydney Opera House, and the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb.

Head into the city and walk around the beautiful Sydney Harbour, or go on a boat tour out on the water. There are many fun activities in Sydney, so make the most of the beautiful weather, get outside, and enjoy the three-day holiday!
