Canberra. Spending Christmas in Canberra is recommended for families and large group of friends since it offers plenty of events and activities. The capital of Australia is famous for pulling tourists all over the world. Canberra also broke the Guinness World Record™ last year for the most number of lights on an artificial Christmas tree.
Christmas in the City is back! The official lighting of the Christmas tree will be on November 17, so book your flight early. This year, In The City Canberra is presenting a brand new series of food, drinks, music, handcrafted and art markets and other awesome entertainment.
Mornington Peninsula. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the capital cities during the Christmas season by heading to the Mornington Peninsula. Famous for its golf and favorable weather, Christmas is the best time to get out on the green and try 15 of Australia’s best golf clubs, each even more beautiful than the last.
Kangaroo Island. A great destination for anyone wanting to experience a world away from home without actually leaving Australian soil. This island has 509 kilometers of coastline, and a bushland and wildlife to discover when you want to break away from the beach. An ideal destination for adults looking to spoil themselves silly during the season.
Try the Kangaroo Island Farm Gate and Cellar Door Trail to try out fresh produce and wines straight from the source. Foodies will enjoy the King George Whiting, tasty honey and sheep’s cheese all located on the island. You’ll find home-made native jams, free-range eggs, marinades, olives, sauces and many more aplenty. Enjoy your Christmas with fresh seafood like oysters, prawns, snapper, and other freshwater favorites.
Coffs Harbour. The family-friendly Coffs Harbour has a relaxed, beachy area that welcomes visitors with open arms. Maximize your sunny Christmas weather and head over to the Solitary Islands Marine Park to enjoy the uncrowded beach and explore the wildlife.
You can also spend your time at the Botanic Gardens, which are open to the public daily. The hidden gardens are a treasure trove of natural beauty, with mangroves, rainforests, and koalas high up in the trees. Try the town of Bellingen for an off-the-beaten-track destination. This town boasts mild and warm weather all year-round and is perfect for activities, such as kayaking, cycling, and bush walking.
