Travel to Australia for Christmas 2018

travel to australia for christmas

If you are looking to travel to Australia for Christmas then you have made a very good decision although you might have to be quick to find flights as it is a popular time of the year to travel. 

Travel to Australia for Christmas can be a great way to escape the harsh British Winter but takes planning and some thought to ensure you make the most from your trip down-under. The absolute peak departure time and the highest fares are usually departing after the 18th December so we would recommend departing early December or at the end of November when the airfares may be lower. We would recommend Qantas , Emirates or Singapore Airlines but the choice of airline will depend on where you want to break your journey. ( The cheapest isn’t always the best )

First of all you need to think about what you want to see and how long you want to be away . Consider which way you want to travel to Australia and what way you want to come back. We always think it is a great idea to develop your trip into an around the World ticket and take in some the World’s most amazing and diverse destinations . Why not live for today ?

One of the most popular around the World tickets would be to fly out through South-East Asia and experience Bangkok , Kuala Lumpur or maybe Singapore. We would then recommend flying into Perth , on to Uluru and the Red Centre before travelling to Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef. On the return journey to the UK why not check out Castaway Island in Fiji and then Los Angeles or San Francisco.

One of the most important reasons to travel to Australia for Christmas is of course the weather as the Australian seasons are the opposite to the Northern Hemisphere. The temperature in Sydney in December averages about 25c but can reach much higher. If you are heading up North to the Great Barrier Reef then the weather in Cairns in December will average around 32c but you may get some rain as the wet seasons builds up around December.

Of course many people travel to Australia for Christmas to visit friends and relatives and Christmas in Australia can feel a little strange walking around in shorts and swimming in the sea. And the shock when you arrive back into the UK in a cold , dark January can leave you wanting to get straight back on the plane.

If you do not have the luxury of staying with friends and relative s, there is a great selection of amazing hotels and resorts around Australia with a real focus on gastronomy. The food and wine in Australia is wonderful ( especially the wine ) . We would recommend spending some time on Kangaroo Island or maybe the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia.
