This is what Christmas looks like in Queensland

Dreaming of a white Christmas? Well, it seems even Santa is more interested in hitting the surf than the slopes this year. The jolly man in the red suit has ditched his sleigh for a jetski and headed Down Under to enjoy a sun-filled Queensland Christmas escape.

Don’t worry, Santa still knows how to reach all the good boys and girls!

Looks like the big guy has perfected the 360° spin.

Wive’s tale or not, waiting for that Christmas feast to digest before you plunge into the pool, surf or Great Barrier Reef is always a good idea. Take it from Santa.

“He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake”… that goes for you too, Nemo.

Captain Santa is headed for the open seas.

Christmas is better in the great outdoors – especially when it’s a balmy 30-something-degrees day and the world’s greatest outdoor pool is at your disposal.

Santa may just have found some replacements for Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen.

But he still can’t resist a cuddle with some of the cutest locals around.

Santa has traded the boots for comfy crocs!

After a big night of delivering presents, Santa has earned some time off to relax and soak in the Queensland sun.

P.S. The Christmas sun in Queensland is hot hot hot, so trade in those sweaters for an Ugly Xmas Rashie and #treatyoself to a fun-filled festive season!

Merry Christmas to all!
