Spend Christmas Where the Surf's Up in Australia

Thinking about a Christmas vacation? Think out of the box. Spend Christmas where the roses are blooming and the surf's up. Head to Queensland, Australia!

Queensland is one of Australia's six states and takes up a large chunk of the Australian continent on the northeast corner. Its long shoreline borders both the Coral Sea and the Pacific Ocean. For a full vacation Queensland has it all, from golden beaches to the Outback, from the Great Barrier Reef to tropical rain forests. Use your budget timeshare as home base, and start exploring!

Rent a timeshare at the Surfers Royale resort sits right on the beach on the Gold Coast in Surfers Paradise. Does that give you a hint as to what you might want to do first? Up and down the Gold Coast are some of the best surfing beaches in the world and often you can spot world-class surfers practicing their "cutback on the curl." Each year the Quiksilver Pro at Coolangatta is held as one leg of the ASP World tour of Surfing.

You can also treat yourself to sailing, boating, parasailing and fishing. Not to mention just relaxing on the beach enveloped in warm sun, the smell of salt air, and the sound of crashing waves on the shore.

The famed Australian Outback is right at your back door. The wild beauty of this stunning wilderness is like nowhere else on earth. You'll be able to get a taste of the Outback on a day road trip from your timeshare.

For exciting nightlife, alfresco river-front dining, and cosmopolitan shopping visit Brisbane, just an hour from your timeshare. Brisbane, Queensland's capital, is Australia's third largest and fastest growing city. Or head to the glamour of Gold Coast City, Australia's "Hollywood." Here 75% of Australia's films are made at the many movie studios and sound stages. The latest in the Chronicles of Narnia series is currently being filmed at the Warner Bros. Studio.

Also at Gold Coast City the entire family will "have a blast" at Dreamworld, Australia's largest theme park. Besides thrilling rides for teens and adults, Dreamworld also offers Nick Central, a Nickelodeon-sponsored kid's area, and Wiggles World for toddlers and infants. Or keep your feet on the ground and explore Tiger Island, The Australian Wildlife Experience, and Gold Rush Country. Since Christmas is in the middle of summer in Australia, you can cool off on a hot day at Dremworld's new waterpark, White Water World.

Happy Christmas! And remember - there's always shrimp on the barbee and learning to talk like a fair dinkim Aussie! See all Australia timeshare resorts.
