New Year’s Day Australia : January 1

New Year's Day in Australia is celebrated on January 1 each year in all states and territories. New Year’s Day is a national public holiday in Australia. If January 1 is a Saturday or Sunday, the first working day following it, is considered to be an official holiday.


The celebrations for New Year’s Day actually start on New Year’s Eve when people come together and remember the past year and prepare for the countdown to the New Year. At 12 o clock midnight bottles of Champaign are popped to toast on the New Year, fireworks are lit and people hug and kiss to wish each other a Happy New Year.
