Christmas In Australia

How We Do It

Christmas in Australia falls in the middle of summer so you won’t find any snow! (unless you are in Tasmania, anything could happen).

The climate and local produce that we are so lucky to have, dictate what we do and eat.


What would Christmas be without fresh cherries? They make the ideal gift and you’ll see a big bowl of cherries floating around the table at every Aussie Christmas BBQ.

Backyard Cricket

Or even better, beach cricket. What would a family BBQ be without Dad bowling bouncers at you from 10 metres away?


Ham off the bone is an absolute must, and lots of it. Ham on toast, ham on biscuits and even ham on ham!


Forget assortments of roast meats; turkey, crayfish and a few prawns will do us just fine. Christmas in Australia is the busiest time of the year for the seafood industry as everyone wants the freshest produce, with over 120 tonnes and 70,000 oysters expected to be sold in 36 hours this Christmas!


Leaving a six pack out for Santa is not uncommon in Australia. From champagne with breakfast to brandy with dessert it would be rare to find a house hold not loaded with booze at Christmas.
