December is festive season in Australia. I took some times off work and travelled along north and south coast of Australia. December is summer time therefore the weather is so hot. One unique about this place is no doubt the weather. People can get sun burn easily. So be careful when you go to a beach for swimming, do put suntan lotion. Everywhere else in the world you sweat but when mercury rises in Australia you get sun burn. This documented what I did during December 2008. Nothing special. Photo Gallery
