Search by region or country

A School holiday is an area event. It is filtered at either the region or country level. The location for an event may be at a regional level if the majority of schools in that region commence break at the same time, same for countries.

A longer duration school holiday will result in a positive impact on Aviation Rank as families are likely to travel across the country or overseas for longer breaks.
