2018 school term and holiday dates in Australia

School term and school holiday dates in Australia 2018Here is our full list of term and school holiday dates for each state and territory for 2018.

This list is for government schools so if your child attends a 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 dates listed below are the dates the students starts. Although, we have included teacher start and finish dates where the information has been available.

There are also a set number of pupil-free days set aside for Teacher Development. We have accounted for these where they fall at the beginning or end of the term but there will also be dates within the term – check with your school to see when these occur.
