Does anyone know of a source for public holiday calendar dates for
Australia (all states) that looks forward, say 2 years. I know that
some states don't gazette their holiday dates until the last minute, but
I need to be able to regularly refresh a listing I will be using in a
Some are fixed (AU day, ANZAC day, Christmas, etc), some are calculable
(Queen's bday, Labour day, Melb Cup day, etc), others are
pseudo-astronomic (Easter - yes I do know the church works it out),
others are local (Albury Cup half day, I give up there), so a calendar
of dates is the best way to go.
XML or plain text format would be best as I don't want to have to scrape
a visual web site to get the data.
