    If, like the famous song goes you’re dreaming of a white Christmas, take a moment to consider an alternative way of making your Christmas dreams come true.

    How about the whitest softest sand underneath your bare feet, with the sun beaming down on you as you sip a cocktail with close family or friends, taking in the views of the picturesque coastal beach life at Fraser Island.

    Not a scarf or snowman in sight, you’ve got your very own white Christmas in the heat of summer, down under on the east coast of Australia.

    Forgo tearing open shiny Christmas gifts and give your soul a treat as every time you turn around the island’s natural beauty will keep you smiling this holiday season.

    Spend your days exploring the island or why not head out to sea on a dolphin watch cruise and experience a day of magical marine life harmonised with this corner of the world.




    Be true to your alternative holiday and sample some of the islands freshest sea food in place of your usual stuffed turkey banquet.  And forget place settings with table confetti, dinner alfresco is the theme this year with a traditional Aussie BBQ on the beach!

    Party season is in full swing as several resorts are eager to share their Christmas themed party packages with you, with a bucket load of community spirit you’ll feel more than welcome to stay.


    As we know, Christmas doesn’t come cheap wherever you are but use the money you’ve saved on wrapping paper, gifts, name tags and heating bills on your dream trip of a lifetime that will leave you with happy memories forever more.


    Christmas at Fraser Island is being with the ones you love in a place you want to call home.
