Although Australia is a multi-religion country, Christmas is still a major holiday marking the end of the year. Far from being cold and dark, Christmas in Australia comes within 3 days of the longest day of the year. There are long daylight hours and warm temperatures. This can be a real experience for visitors who are used to short days and long cold nights at Christmastime.
You can have any type of weather for your Christmas in Australia except a white Christmas (although snow has been recorded in Hobart on Christmas Day). The traditional Christmas Day involves a barbeque and lots of beer.
