With four long weekends and a handful of other public holidays scattered throughout the year, Tasmania boasts the highest number of holidays in Australia. And being a small-yet-diverse state that just begs for weekend road trips, we want you to make the absolute most of it.

While not all of Tasmania gets a bonus day off for the Royal Hobart Regatta, we’ve calculated the holiday days for the parts of the state that do get a public holiday on this day.
