Show day public holidays get thumbs up
  • Thursday 07 October 2010

Sunshine Coast Council has agreed that the status quo should remain when it comes to the question of one show public holiday or three for the Sunshine Coast Region.

The discussion was prompted by the Minister for Industrial Relations annual call to council to provide dates for the annual Show Day holiday under the Holiday Act 1983.

At the Ordinary Meeting this week, councillors approved the three dates offered for the Show Day holidays for 2011 and also quashed any suggestion that the historic, and well loved “people’s” days should be merged into one.

The Show Day public holidays for 2011 will be:

  • Maleny Show: Friday 3 June
  • Sunshine Coast Show (Nambour): Friday 17 June
  • Noosa Country Show (Pomona): Friday 9 September

The Show Day holidays apply to the areas within the local government boundaries that were in place prior to amalgamation - the former Noosa Shire, Maroochy Shire and Caloundra City areas.
