King’s Birthday Weather 2024: Here’s How the Forecast for Australia Is Looking

The Easter long weekend has passed and we’re already looking forward to our next public holiday. In most parts of Australia, this will be the King’s Birthday public holiday in June, a weekend that often calls for a short getaway (provided the weather allows it).

While still a few weeks away, but we thought we’d take a look at the long-range weather forecast to see what’s likely in store for us over the long weekend.

When is the King’s Birthday in 2024 and which states observe it?

So here’s the thing: King Charles’ birthday is not actually on the date we choose to observe it as a holiday. The public holiday date also varies across the different Australian states and territories.

The King’s Birthday falls on the second Monday of June, which this year will be Monday the 10th. New South Wales, ACT, Victoria, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and South Australia will all observe the public holiday in June. Queensland and Western Australia celebrate it at different times throughout the year.
