I love being at work. (Honest, boss)… but I love a day off more. 🍹

If you relate to this, then get excited for next year’s calendar! 2024 has some cheeky opportunities to create some four-day weekends, as well as some longer vacay stints, while using minimal leave – how good! 🤙

Regional Days

A few regional days leave extended weekends up for grabs!

Both Auckland Anniversary Day and Nelson Anniversary Day fall on Monday, January 29 in 2024, with Waitangi Day falling a little over a week later.

This means people in those areas can potentially get 11 days away from work (including the weekends) using just five days of leave.

If you hail from Otago can also enjoy a longer break using fewer days of leave, with Easter falling close to the region's anniversary day in 2024.

Otago Anniversary Day is observed on Monday, March 25th, with Easter beginning on Friday, March 29th. This means people in the region can get 10 days off work (including the weekends) using just three days of annual leave, from March 26-28.

Waitangi Day

Waitangi Day lands on a Tuesday in 2024, so you can take Monday, February 5 off and gift themselves an easy four-day weekend.

An Easter Treat Down South 🐣🍫

Easter will be observed from Friday, March 29th to Monday, April 1st, in 2024.

Southland’s Anniversary Day falls on Tuesday, April 2nd, so those in the far south will get an EXTRA long Easter break next year.

Anzac Day

Anzac Day (April 25) falls on a Thursday in 2024, offering up another opportunity for a cheeky four-day weekend if people take the Friday off work.

Extra-Long Labour Weekend in Hawke's Bay

By Monday, October 28th we’ll all be craving a day and for those in The Hawke's Bay you’ll get an extra-long weekend with the Anniversary Day on Friday, October 25th.

Other dates for the calendar:

King's Birthday falls on Monday, June 3rd in 2024.

Matariki falls on Friday, June 28th in 2024.

Make sure you are stretching out these public holiday dates to get a jump on some extra vacay days! Happy laxing! 🧘‍♀️
