Public Holidays

Moyne Shire Council observes all Victorian Public Holidays. 

The Victorian Government give Council's a choice of having a Public Holiday on Melbourne Cup Day in Noevmber, or selecting a local day of significance. Moyne Shire Councillor's discuss the date of a local public holiday at an open council meeting towards the end of each year. 

At the December 2022 Council Meeting, Councillors nominated Warrnambool Cup Day (Thursday May 4, 2023) as their preferred day. This has since been approved by the Victorian Minister for Small Business and placed in the Victorian Government Gazette.
