2020 Public Holiday dates
The following public holidays are observed throughout New Zealand for 2020. Be aware that many businesses and attractions are closed on public holidays, and those that are open may charge a surcharge. Accommodations tend to be booked out long in advance of public holidays, so early planning is advised. If a public holiday falls on a weekend day (ie Saturday or Sunday), the holiday is observed the next working day (ie Monday).
