Your Australian Christmas in Melbourne will unlikely be feeling the same as it does in the winter grey that lingers over our British shores. We “Brits” remain forever hopeful of snow, whilst tucked in and cheering on the Ashes. Fortunately, with our most common disappointment over the weather, we at least have the greatest meal known to man that can warm our hearts… and our bellies.
However, why would one hope for snow when he can lounge his tipsy self in the blissful Australian sun, and smugly smirk at his less fortunate relations who are left to suffer a cold wet winter back home. What could such a person have to fear when thriving off such fortunate circumstances? Perhaps his relations, dosed on wit, smirking back as they feast on the grandest meal of the year, whilst he is left clueless, wondering where on earth he will get his!?
Well, fortunately, we’ve taken the time to seek out 5 of the best Melbourne eateries to fill your bellies with a traditional Christmas lunch.
