Unlike traditional Winter scenes in Christmas movies, Australian Christmases can be very different. Temperatures in December tend to be pretty hot, so you’re more likely to be on the beach or spending time in the garden than wrapped up in a festive jumper.
While some Aussies like to make up for this with Yulefest in July, you don’t have to wait months for the perfect snowy Christmas.
You could create a Winter wonderland at home, or book a romantic getaway for two, fly away to a snowy destination and enjoy some amazing outdoor Christmas activities.
Going to a Christmas market can be a magical and romantic experience. Picture gingerbread house style stalls, a giant Christmas tree adorned with sparkling fairy lights and Christmas music playing, all while walking hand-in-hand with your loved one, sipping on mulled wine or enjoying a hot chocolate. That all sounds amazing, doesn’t it? It’s making us want to book a Christmas market experience!
Whether you’re in the early stages of dating or have been together for decades, a Winter walk can be a romantic experience. Walk through woodlands where trees are topped with snow, enjoy a city break where you walk through streets decorated with lights, or enjoy the peace and quiet of a stroll along the beach. Remember to pack your camera for those loved up selfies!
While a beach picnic or BBQ can be great fun over the holidays, they don’t quite compare to a snowy winter picnic. Make sure to wrap up warm, pack lots of hot drinks, make some Christmas party food and don’t forget the blanket! For an extra splash of romance, take candles and fairy lights, drink champagne, and have fun making snow angels with your partner.
Outdoor ice rinks feature in a lot of Christmas movies and it’s easy to see why. Not only are they outdoor ice rinks festive, but they also provide an opportunity to get close to your partner in a romantic, Winter setting. Whether you’re dreaming of New York, London or Munich, book a winter getaway complete with an outdoor ice rink, so you can hold hands, cuddle up and make amazing Christmas memories together.
Every Aussie should experience a snowy Winter Christmas at least once. Treat your partner to a Winter getaway and enjoy some of these romantic outdoor activities for a Christmas you’ll never forget!
