Kent’s tips for assignee relocation at Christmas time this holiday season

If you’ve relocated, or are about to relocate, to Australia, you may be feeling a little homesick as the holiday season comes around. If you’re from the Northern Hemisphere the season will be feeling very different, but don’t worry. Australians love the holiday period, and that’s why this part of the year is full of incredible events and activities for all ages.

We’ve created a guide to Australian Christmas Events 2017 to ensure you know exactly what is going on in your new home. The best way to approach a relocation is to embrace the local culture as much as possible, and attending these events will help you do that. It will also help Human Resources departments to get their assignees settled in time to enjoy these activities.

What Will I Find in the Australian Christmas Events in Australia 2017 Guide?

To make everything as easy as possible, we’ve looked for events in each major city. That way, all you have to do is look up your city and find a holiday event that suits you. Despite the fact that it’s hot, Australian’s love Christmas, and you’ll see decorations and events everywhere.

There are a few differences to be aware of. Firstly, the lead up to Christmas is all about BBQs, although you’ll still find people cooking roasts on the big day – even if the mercury is pushing 40 degrees. You’ll also notice that every square inch of grass is covered with people playing cricket, and joining in is a great way to meet new people, and get a taste for ‘Christmas Down Under’.

You‘ll be able to attend events ranging from carols nights to special dessert bars and plenty of fireworks and light shows. The carols nights in Sydney and Melbourne are the biggest in the country, and worth making a trip for.
