Please make available iCalendar (.ics) files of New Zealand national and local holidays. Note this was previously available but the link no longer works. e.g.

    The iCalendar is no long available because we cannot guarantee that it contains the most up-to-date information.

    The only link with up-to-date information about public holiday dates is:

    Kia Ora,

    I was looking for the NZ holidays calendar feed (I had those in the past and it was useful). The site from Government Public Holiday website

    Link to that page :

    Which does not work.

    Likewise, the links on this very page do not work anymore (even the links in the comments from 17 February 2021 at 15:09 03:09 pm).

    If you could fix it and bring back the Calendar feed; that would be terrific.

    Thanks and keep up the nice work.
