Where To Enjoy Christmas in July In Sydney 2018

Christmas in july Sydney 2018

We Sydney-siders are very fortunate when it comes to the weather. We’ve definitely lucked out on the sunshine front. But there are some times when the elements that come with a colder climate are suited and Christmas is one of them. Snow, Santa, sleighs, mulled wine, chestnuts roasting on an open fire – it all points to the chillier climate of our Northern Hemisphere counterparts. So, in true Australian fashion, we’ve created a little something special for ourselves – Christmas in July.

It’s a chance for us to embrace the cooler climate and enjoy things like mulled wine, open-air ice-skating, and snowball fights. We look at where to enjoy Christmas in July in Sydney (and a bit beyond) this year.
