Christmas in Queensland

Most parts of the world celebrate Christmas during winter or their cold season, but in Queensland it’s the exact opposite. A Queensland Christmas means the start of summer!

Besides going to festivals, the whole family can enjoy the warm and sunny weather outdoors by visiting Queensland’s crystal-clear waters, sandy beaches and fun theme parks. There are also many cultural attractions to go to and wildlife adventures to experience.
