Public holidays in Tasmania are being reviewed.
Premier Will Hodgman confirmed the Department of Justice was looking at public holidays but stressed there was no plan to cut the number of holidays.
“There’s inconsistency across our state that does cause some confusion for not only visitors but also business which also has concerns about those inconsistencies,” he said.
"We are currently undertaking a review into Tasmania's public holidays.
"We have no plans to reduce the amount of public holidays that Tasmanians enjoy but if we can get greater consistency and match and align with other jurisdictions then we should look and see if that's possible."
A government spokesman said initial work was being done to look at public holidays.
“When further advice is received, the Government will consider the most appropriate pathway forward,” he said.”
“The Government understands that regional events and associated holidays are important to many communities, so no decision on changes to public holidays will be made without the opportunity for Tasmanians to have their say.”
In line with the rest of Australia, Tasmania has nine gazetted public holidays.
However, there are holidays specific to regional areas for local events.
