Break the winter doldrums with Queen's birthday holiday fun
Of all our public holidays here in Australia, the Queen's Birthday carries the least tradition of all. Ironic really. In 2013 Australian's will have a Monday holiday on June 10th, except Western Australians, who are to mark the occasion on September 30th. And if you're South Australian, you may know this day by its alternate title: Volunteer's Day.
Here's a selection of activity ideas for the Queen's Birthday holiday for monarchists and republicans alike. Who knows, perhaps some of these may morph into personal ritual in future years. Have fun!
