* Public holidays generally follow the national pattern, but special cases (for example, in 2011 Easter & Anzac Day fall on the same weekend) are resolved by the state government a couple of years in advance and advised by proclamation. Details of future holidays can be found on the NSW Government’s Industrial Relations website and the NSW Board of Studies website, which also details NSW school holidays. Bank holidays in New South Wales are regulated by the New South Wales Banks and Bank Holidays Act 1912.
