Koalas, Kangaroos, and Masterchef are some of the things that come to our mind when we think of Australia. Be it Sydney’s New Year’s Eve or Christmas celebration in the summer, Aussies sure know how to turn it up and celebrate.
While most Aussies enjoy Christmas with a crate of beer and some great food, here are 9 unique Christmas party ideas that can be tried out instead. Make sure to send these Quirky Christmas Party Invitation Ideas which suit your event idea.
1. Christmas Ball
Who doesn’t love dancing? Host a Christmas ball by organizing a live music concert or a DJ for your community. It can be a masquerade party or a get-together with some great music, beers, and a few food trucks for fast food. While some jive and roll to music beats and the Christmas hit, some can simply relax, enjoy the music and the traditional lamb shoulder roast.
2. Christmas Party Games
Whether it is a large family or a group of friends, Christmas party games are a great way to have fun together. Organize games like Candy Cane hunt, White Elephant, or simply play minute to win it games and roll down with laughter and find the winner among you.
3. The Australian Ninja Warrior
Organize outdoor sports events for your community or neighbors this Christmas. You don’t have to be Australian Ninja warriors to win the game. Your games can be as simple as a scavenger hunt with cookies hidden in the bushes or play games like Giant Beer Pong. Wow! That’s going to be a fun day outing.

4. Host a Sandman Contest
Since Aussies love being outdoors, whether it is for a barbie or simply going to the beach, you can plan this year’s Christmas party at the beach along with your family or just a group of friends. Your family can relax and enjoy sunbathing, while you host a sandman contest for the kids. If it’s a large group, make teams and let them pour out their creativity by building a Christmas Sandman of different sizes. The team that makes the best sandman wins the Aussie famous boomerang.
5. Christmas Barbie(BBQ)
Another fun Christmas party idea is to bring your community closer by hosting a Christmas Barbie along with some outdoor games. An Australian Christmas Barbeque party is incomplete without burgers, sausages, steaks, and loads of chilled beer.
Since Aussies love eating fresh salads, you can incorporate salads along with Barbeques and make it a great combination with a wide variety of cold beers. Follow these Tips For Organizing and Hosting The Best Food Festival.
6. Organize a Mini Masterchef
Cook-Offs are a great way of bringing Australian foodies closer. While most Aussies love eating Vegemite on toast, barbecue sausages, and meat pies, you can host a mini Masterchef in your neighborhood to find out the best chef. They don’t have to be as good as George Calombaris or Luke Nguyen. Your cook-off can include dishes like Roasted Chicken, Eggnogs, or Christmas pudding.
7. White Christmas
While most of the world celebrates Christmas during winters with snowy rooftops and chilly nights, It’s a different season in Australia during that time of the year. A lot of Aussies prefer keeping a short Christmas celebration in July to get the feeling of Christmas in winter. It can be as special as a Christmas brunch with a family with a roasted turkey or building a snowman outdoors.
8. Host A Talent Show
Host The Voice but instead of pop songs, let your contestants sing classic Christmas carols. Also, similar to the reality show, you can have your panel of judges sit with backs facing the contestants. Like in the reality show, judges will turn around when a talented singer or a choir impresses them with their voice.
9. Christmas Bake-off
Bake-offs are a great way to have fun with your friends and community. Call out all the talented bakers of your suburb for a Christmas bake-off. Since Christmas is the theme, and Tim Tams are loved by most Aussies, get the bakers to bake Tim Tam cakes in different variations as a part of your contest. Set a few rules for the bake-off and let the contest begin.
