We go camping on the south coast for Christmas. The caravan park is always full so there are many people that also 'escape' their families at Christmas.
We decorate the tent with tinsel and Christmas lights. We have a traditional Christmas dinner as that was how DH was brought up. I would prefer cold meats and salads on Christmas day (as th is how I was brought up) but DH has somehow go his way with this one. Maybe this year I'll talk him into having a cold lunch for Christmas Day (I can live in hope).
The first year we went away we took all the presents with us. Big mistake as they took up too much room. Now we open most before we leave and take a couple each for the children to open on Christmas Day. We forgot to take a couple for Christmas Day in 2011 and it didn't feel like Christmas Day as here were no presents to unwrap. I'll never make that mistake again.
If you don't want to stay in Australia what about Bali or Europe.
I'd love to spend a Christmas in Lapland one year. Another Christmas I'd love to spend in the UK with my British relatives.http://lapland.nordicvisitor.com/travel-de...-claus-village/
This site may give you ideas on what you want to do for Christmas this year.
