NSW Public holidays in detail

Bank Holiday Monday - 6th August

This public holiday is exclusive to New South Wales and only to employees working within the banking and financial sectors. It falls on the first Monday of August each year, forming a three day weekend and has been in operation since 1875. The holiday came about as a result of the extra work counting house staff were required to perform in the June 30 balances, in an effort to compensate them for their efforts.
