What is leave loading?

I am a relatively new public servant working in Queensland, Australia and I've just found out that in the pay before Christmas my 17.5% leave loading will be paid out. Great! But uh... what is it? And how much extra can I expect to find in my pay?

Q1) What is leave loading? How does it work, exactly?
Q2) How much extra will I find in my pay packet this Christmas? I understand it has something to do with how much I earn (I know that much at least) so to help you help me, I earn $2043.50 per fortnight before tax and I've been working in this job since pretty much the start of May. I've also used all my recreational leave.
