In 2011 the date in Western Australia was moved from Monday 3 October to Friday 28 October 2011 so that it coincided with the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting taking place in Perth at that time.

When is Queen's Birthday in Australia?

The Queen's Birthday holiday is a moveable feast celebrating the birthday of Queen Elizabeth II who is not only Queen of Great Britain but also Queen of Australia, New Zealand and 13 of the 50 other countries in the commonwealth. 

The holiday traditionally marks the start of the Australian ski season.

On this day, businesses will generally be closed. Shops may open but observe restricted trading hours. Transport may operate on a Saturday or reduced timetable.

In Queensland, this holiday is observed on the first Monday in October since 2016.

In Western Australia, the Queen's Birthday holiday is celebrated in either late September or early October. The date is decided by the state governor.

The Queen's actual birthday is neither in June nor October but in April. The official birthday is in June to increase the chance of good weather for the celebrations in the UK, not to help the Australian Ski industry. It is not a public holiday in the UK.

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary of the House of Windsor was born on April 21st, 1926.

In 1952, after the death of her father, King George VI, Elizabeth succeeded to the throne and was known thereafter as Queen Elizabeth II.

Queen Elizabeth II continues to reign as Queen of Australia after a referendum in 1999 which resulted in the retention of Australia's constitutional monarchy.

Most retail stores will open on this holiday, though operating under restricted trading hours.
