2017 school term and holiday dates in Australia

School holiday dates and term dates in Australian states and territories in 2017So what exactly are you in for this year – what are the dates for school holidays and terms in your state?

It is all here – our full list of term and school holiday dates for each state and territory for 2017. Print them out or keep the link handy so you remember!

This list is for government schools so if your children attend non-government schools they might have slightly different dates. Also some year groups finish earlier at the end of the year – so it is a good idea to always double check in these cases.

There is also often a difference between the teachers’ start date and the students’ start date. The date we have listed below is the date the students starts. Although, we have included teacher start and finish dates where the information has been available.
