How much do we look forward to summer christmas? No need to answer that. At the end of a long year our traditional summer christmas break means the good times are about to roll. Tradies down their tools, kids belt out Alice Cooper’s – “School’s out for Summer”, Mums and Dads embrace some well deserved R & R and a newly gained licence for 18 year olds means freedom and the “best days of your life”.

And summer christmas is guaranteed to be action packed. The beach, the river, the mountains. Sport, sport and more sport.
