No long weekend for Anzac Day this year

THERE will be no public holiday on Monday for Anzac Day this year.

The annual day for remembrance, held on April 25, falls on a Saturday.

The Holidays Act provides for an extra public holiday to be added when Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year's Day falls on a weekend, but not Anzac Day.

Western Australia is the only state observing a public holiday on Monday for Anzac Day.

Australia is this year marking 100 years since the Anzac Day landing.

COMMENT: 'Anzac Day more important to us than Christ's birthday'
