What to do if you are spending Christmas in Brisbane

Christmas in Australia is typically a little different from what you might be used to. Santa arrives on a boogie board, at the beach, wearing thongs, gifting us with prawns and Pavlova. Well, not exactly, but it’s certainly warm (really warm!) and Christmas dinner is swapped for lunchtime BBQs and pool-side hangs. It’s a time to celebrate family, friends and eat delicious food. So if you are hanging around Brisbane this summer, here’s how you can get into the Christmas spirit – from the festive activities in King George Square to day trips to the beach, and everything in between.
