With COVID-19 restrictions causing the rescheduling of multiple Show Day Public Holidays, QLD retailers need to be aware that this affects trading hours and penalty rates.

These updates are published weekly via the QLD Government Gazette.

Until restrictions are lifted, the NRA will publish the gazettes here for handy reference.

All dates are changed to 14 August 2020 to align with Ekka.
