Picnic Basket


Ah, Christmas in Australia. While our Northern Hemisphere counterparts are busy building snowmen and cozying up by the fire, here in the land Down Under, it’s all about enjoying the sunny weather outdoors. If you've been pondering how to spend your Aussie Christmas this year, why not consider a festive picnic? Not only is it a fantastic way to soak up the summer vibes, but it also offers a laid-back setting to connect with loved ones. Let's delve into some fantastic Christmas picnic ideas that will make your Australian holiday memorable!

Why a Picnic?

A picnic is not just a meal; it's an experience. It allows you to break free from the traditional indoor setting and to relish the natural beauty that Australia has to offer. From the sun-soaked beaches of Sydney to the lush botanical gardens in Adelaide, you have plenty of spots to choose from for your Christmas celebration.

Benefit of Safety

With the ongoing global situation, an outdoor picnic also offers a safer alternative to indoor gatherings, a point worth considering. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, outdoor activities are generally less risky in terms of transmission of viral infections.

Choosing the Perfect Location

Picnic on the beach

Beachside Beauty

Australia is blessed with some of the world's most beautiful beaches. Imagine setting up a picnic at Bondi Beach or Manly Beach, with the sound of waves in the background. It doesn't get more Australian than that!

Botanical Bounty

For those who prefer a quieter setting, botanical gardens offer a peaceful retreat. Adelaide Botanic Garden, for example, has an abundance of picturesque spots ideal for a Christmas picnic. Plus, you get to be surrounded by a myriad of native Australian flora.

Park Picnics

Australia boasts numerous parks like the Royal National Park in Sydney or Kings Park in Perth that are perfect for a Christmas outing.

The Picnic Spread

Aussie BBQ

An Aussie Christmas is almost incomplete without a barbecue. Fire up a portable BBQ grill and enjoy some classic Australian sausages, known colloquially as "snags," along with other BBQ staples.

Seafood Platter

Seafood is another Australian Christmas favorite. Create a seafood platter featuring prawns, oysters, and barramundi to celebrate the holiday in true Aussie style.

Fresh Fruits

Don’t forget to include a variety of fresh fruits like mangoes and cherries, which are in season during Christmas. They make for light and refreshing snacks.

Safety First

Since we're discussing food, it’s also essential to consider health and safety. Make sure to pack your food in safe containers and keep them cool to avoid spoilage. You can find a range of health-compliant gloves to handle food at Morewell, ensuring your Christmas picnic is both enjoyable and safe.
