To help plan your holiday to Western Australia, this is a guide to WA school holidays for 2022 to 2026. These dates are for primary and secondary students in public schools – private schools have their own holiday dates.

School holidays are a popular and busy time for travel within Western Australia and accommodation prices are at their highest.
