Whether you were patiently waiting for international borders to open or were one of the lucky ones to fit in a domestic trip last year, chances are it’s likely you have some annual leave to spare and it is practically certain you are overdue for a break.

To help you make the most of your 2021 public holidays, we’ve put together a handy quick-reference long weekend guide for where you should be taking annual leave to get more days off and enjoy more long weekends.

On that note of being thrifty, if you are working from home or have flexible hours, you may even be able to finish work early on a Friday without taking the day off in leave too, but we’ll just leave that up to you…
