Product Description:

This Excel document is a must-have for Australian social media community managers looking to plan for 2018. Covering January to December 2018, this calendar lists the special dates which you should keep in mind when planning content, competitions or campaigns.

This calendar includes both ‘month-long’ events (ie. Movember) and special days.

Specially designed for the days and dates relevant for Australians, you won’t find international calendars highlighting Clean Up Australia Day, the State Of Origin or the Ekka.

This calendar includes:

  • Australian Public Holidays (National and State Level) and NSW School Holidays.
  • UN observances (eg. International Day of Friendship)
  • Sporting Events (eg. US Open, AFL Grand Final)
  • Award Show Listings (eg. Oscars)
  • Daylight Savings Changes – Australia
  • Seasons / Equinox Dates
  • Commemorative dates (eg. ANZAC Day)
  • Silly and fun dates (eg. Talk Like A Pirate Day, Elmo’s Birthday)

It also includes links to resources which update throughout the year, including:

  • Australian TV premieres
  • Films in Australian cinemas
  • Australian events (eg. Sydney Festival, Sculptures By The Sea)
  • Community events (eg. Movember)
  • US television and Netflix premiere dates
  • Community health events (ie. World No Tobacco Day)

Every effort has been made to make these dates accurate at time of writing, but it is worth checking that dates haven’t moved since publication if you are going to use these events in your social media, or if the events are relevant to your industry.
