We Australian’s celebrate Christmas a little differently to those in the wintery north of the globe. We bask with friends and family in sun-kissed surrounds, and indulge in Christmas BBQs out in our al fresco spaces. We laugh under the stars, long into our endless summer nights. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
In honour of Australia’s love of outdoor Christmas entertaining, here at Harvey’s HQ, we’ve put together a special look at the best outdoor lounges, outdoor dining settings, and BBQs to take your Christmas celebrations to new heights. All available at Harvey Norman, these outdoor furniture and BBQ selections encompass the latest home style trends and innovations – and are an outstanding way to enjoy all the glory of Christmas in Australia.
So, without further ado, here are our picks for this season’s best Outdoor Settings and BBQs for Christmas Entertaining.
