Festive Facts and Figures

Some festive season figures:
  • In 2007 Santa Claus will be visiting around 5.2 million Australian families, 3.2 million of which have children under 15 years of age.

  • In preparation for Christmas, over $10 million worth of Christmas tree lighting and more than $56 million worth of other Christmas-related articles have been imported this year (up until October).

  • More Australian residents travel overseas on Christmas Day to "visit family and friends" (7,712 people last year) than those who travel to Australia for the same reason (5,235 short term visitors arrived in Australia on Christmas Day last year).
