Who doesn't like a day off work? Public holidays are one of life's little pleasure – even if you love your job, there's something really fantastic about being able to spend one extra day relaxing, spending time with friends and family or just catching up on your sleep.
So, if you're like us, you'll be pleased to hear about the brand new public holiday that has been announced in the ACT: Easter Sunday, 27 March.
While many people get the chance to have Sunday off as part of their typical Monday to Friday, there are plenty of people with Belconnen real estate who don't. This is particularly significant during what is usually a time for family. However, the new public holiday will make sure that people giving up this time will be paid more for their trouble – all the more reason to live in the ACT!
"The new Easter Sunday public holiday is a win for hardworking Canberrans who are required to work over the long weekend – including healthcare, retail and hospitality industry workers," Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations Mick Gentleman said.
"The majority of Canberrans will spend the Easter long weekend with family and loved ones, and I hope those not working have a wonderful Easter break and it is only fair that workers who give up this important time on Easter Sunday are appropriately compensated."
So, how are you going to spend your Easter Sunday? The Belconnen Arts Centre offers some fantastic exhibitions that might tempt the creatively inclined, while those looking for an active Sunday can visit the nearby Sports and Aquatic centre.
Or perhaps you'll spend your time scouting out a new Belconnen rental? If you're feeling the need to start house-shopping, get into contact with the team at Ray White Belconnen today.
