Australia I've never noticed that Australians regard Monday as the first day of the week. People I speak to regard it as the second day (albeit the first day of the "working week"). Avalon 22:49, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Really? Not in my experience. After all, why start the week in the middle of the weekend? --Angry mob mulls options 11:26, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
I've never heard it referred to as the first day, in any of the places I've lived here. I'm removing the reference since I don't think it's held as such by the majority. That's only my experience, but I'd like to see a source indicating the contrary if the mention is to be made. Radix 12:28, 15 August 2006 (UTC)
Oh well, Sunday has always been at the weekend to me --Angry mob mulls options 12:20, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

I'm an Australian, I work in education and I have never, ever, not once seen or heard of anything except Sunday, in all my 28 years of life, referred to as the beginning of the week.

I too am an Australian and in school we were taught that Sunday was the first day of the week. When someone says 'next week' it means from Sunday onwards. In Australia though Monday is often referred to as the 'first day of the working week', but not the calendar week.

Sunday indeed is regarded as the first day of the week in Australia, not Monday. GizzaDiscuss © 10:13, 2 August 2007 (UTC)
