Easter Saturday

Easter Saturday is part of the Easter celebrations and will be observed on the 30th of March 2024.

Easter Saturday follows Good Friday and is part of a Christian festival that, according to tradition, celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from death. According to the New Testament, this occurred on the third day of his burial in 30AD.

Easter Saturday Date 2024, Public Holiday, Things To Do & What’s Open

The 2024 Easter long weekend in Australia will be celebrated with several public holidays, starting with Good Friday on the 29th of March, Easter Saturday on the 30th of March, Easter Sunday on the 31st of March and Easter Monday on the 1st of April. This creates a 4-day long weekend for Australians, meaning many families use this time to travel and spend time with their family and friends.

Melbournians traditionally celebrate the extended Easter holiday by not eating meat (except fish) on Good Friday and giving chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday.

Even though most stores close on Good Friday, most supermarkets and shopping centres open for business on Easter Saturday. Movie theatres, restaurants, petrol stations, and many attractions in Melbourne, such as the Melbourne Zoo, Melbourne Aquarium, Melbourne Museum, and the Eureka Skydeck, remain open.
