Before I even have time to blink, we are met with glistens of gold, green, red and silver at the shop fronts. The timber crooked signs pointing to “Santa’s North pole” and, the infamous Christmas carols on repeat. Yep, we are all aware it is Christmas in 29 sleeps, 5hrs, and 39 minutes. If you have Children, its more likely you became aware of this at 179 sleeps, 5hrs, and 39 minutes. Regardless, many of us are in the same boat... “What are we doing for our christmas break?”. If your like me, you still have no idea. This means flights can be expensive (when you finally decide where to go), flights could potentially be booked out. Hotels prices are jumping, hotels could potentially be booked out. So, what next?
Not only does Australia serve as a host to some of the most stunning natural surroundings in the world, we also have the swim-friendly, beach-friendly, outdoors-time-friendly temperature come Christmas time. So, what better excuse to pack up the car, pack up the trailor, drive north, south, east or west, along the coast, hinterland, wherever your heart desires, and find the perfect beach spot, water hole, rock pools or puddle and set up camp beside it?
Go camping with the family, the extended family, friends, couples, who ever! Yes, some camp grounds are going to be overcrowded and over priced, this just gives you more of an incentive to explore further and deeper into the beautiful Australian wilderness. Australia offers many free campsites, nature reserves, campsites on the beach, in the forest, with fires, with no toilets, with toilets, the options are endless and they are waiting to be filled with the festivities and excitement that the Christmas holidays brings!
Get outdoors and enjoy! A very Merry Christmas from EVERYONE at World Travel Professionals!!

Whether you have started writing your very own bucket list, generating one as you go, or thinking about building one, here is another experience we believe should make the cut; Swimming with Whale sharks in Borneo.
Whale sharks are the largest fish in the world. They are slow moving animals and do not fear; they are filter feeding fish and pose no significant danger to humans. They like to swim around the tropical and warm waters. So, whilst enjoying the beauty of the open sea, why not swim next to a fish that can grow to over 12 meters, which is longer then your average bus?
As we understand this may terrify some readers, we have come up with some other examples of things to do in Borneo. If swimming next to a fish that has a mouth span of around 1.5 meters doesn’t float your boat, how about hanging around with some Orangutans? Borneo also offers great trekking trails, bird watching at its finest and the chance to explore caves.
