Each state of Australia sets their own school term and holiday dates - which can be very confusing when travelling interstate. Until the end of 2012, Tasmania had 3 terms per year. From 2013, all states have 4 terms (2 semesters) per year with a mid-semester break.
We include school holiday dates on each city what's on pages (click on state links below), but also here are links to official government sites where you can double-check all dates. In some cases, school teachers return to school one or two days earlier than students.
You can follow the links below to official government sites providing school and other holiday dates.
Tasmania has had 3 school terms each year. In 2013, they will move to 4 terms (2 semesters) per year like the other states. For more details see 4-Term-Flyer.pdf
