Sydney Australia and Hunter Valley

When it comes to adventure for your Christmas Holidays there is no place like going to cosmopolitan Sydney Australia. There is the beautiful Harbor Bridge along with the Opera House. Not far from this area you can go to Hunter Valley to taste some of the best of Australia’s fine wines.


Hunter Valley

There is nothing like a tour of Hunter Valley where you can enjoy the fine wines and cheeses. There are plenty of shops that feature antiques. Those who are into antique shopping will feel like they are in “antique heaven” with all the things featured in the valley. Hot air ballooning is a must to see the whole country side. The feel of the valley and the beautiful terrain will entice anyone to stay for a while and enjoy their Christmas vacation. Those who enjoy golfing will love the golf course in Hunter Valley. The hotels are very exquisite offering many luxuries. A favorite of course is being able to relax with a spa treatment.

Then we all know how exciting it is to go to the outback in Australia where you are able to see the kangaroo’s and other Australian animals. This is just a few miles away from Sydney and can be enjoyed from one of the hot air balloons or by taking a guided trek to the wilderness. Sydney is one of the best areas to enjoy Christmas vacation in the land of the Aussie’s.

Most visited Nativity Scene is found in Postojna Cave where you would take a small train into the cave. There are Angel figures that guide you through the cave formations. Inside the cave there are 16 biblical scenes with about 150 people playing the traditional parts. One of the reasons these scenes are so popular is because they are much grander in size than found in other parts of the world.

The Christmas Tree’s were once upon a time decorated with homemade decorations. Today the decorations are usually stir bought.

      Interesting suggestions for travel at Christmas. I have sometimes wondered how Christmas in Austria would be. People in the UK crave warm weather so some head for the Canary islands.
