The parking restrictions on some signs don’t apply on public holidays, which means you can park for longer than the restriction would usually allow.
This is informed by Rule 318 of the Road Safety Road Rules 2017 in Victoria.

Signs that don’t apply on public holidays
Parking signs that refer to a day of the week don’t apply on a public holiday.
If any day of the week is listed on the sign (for example ‘Mon-Fri’, ‘Sat’ or ‘Sun’) then the restriction doesn’t apply and you can park there as long as you like.
This includes all signs that display a day of the week, including metered and unmetered parking areas, Loading Zones and Clearways.
Signs that DO apply on public holidays
Parking signs that do not display any days of the week apply at all times, even on a public holiday.
If there isn’t a day of the week on the sign, you still need to comply with these restrictions.
