  1. 8) Expect a lot of whining and gnashing of teeth,the traditional monday off after Anzac day weekend , has been cancelled by the Queensland govt!!for years the major part of the aussie population has used this as just another long weekend off work, not a day to commemorate the fallen,and something for the Oldies to reminisce about.It takes an immigrant like me a long time to get used to all the aussie public holidays, you get a day off or 2 because they are holding a race in melbourne, another day for queens birthday ( we didnt get that in UK)and then all the other run ofthe mill bank holidays!! If you play your cards right in april, with a couple of well time sickiesyouget 2 weeks holiday, Maybe when Australia starts to appreciate the Sacrifices its veterans have made for their country, then they will earn the right to celebrate it with a day off :wink:
