COVID-19 Travel Updates Across Australia State by State

Winter School Holidays in Australia

All east coast states of Australia are on holidays at the same time. ACT, QLD, NSW and Vic school holidays are from Sat 26 June to Sun 11 July.

West coast Australia (being WA and SA) is on holidays one week after the east coast states from Sat 3 July to Sun 18 July. NT is doing it's own thing, probably because it's dry season, and is on holidays from 26 June to 19 July.

To get the best deals and availability, east coasters would probably be best served travelling west for that first week and west coasters could travel east for the last week.
