School holiday/2013 dates in Eastern Australia?

I am trying to plan a vacation with my adult daughter to Eastern Australia this September 2013. I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to let me know when the school holidays are from August to October so I can better plan our vacation to avoid those days?

We went to New Zealand in January 2013 and wished that we had known that it was school holiday time as everything was booked and expensive! Thanks so much-

Hi dutyfree,

the main school hols in Oz are in January, I think, but there does also seem to be a holiday from about 20th september to 8th oct, according to this website;

http://www.halftermdates.co.uk/austr...l-holidays.htm

it's a bit confusing but I checked the details for 2 states and they both gave the same dates for that holiday.

enjoy your trip!
