“Christmas in Australia” is the theme song from the animated, made-for-TV movie “Blinky Bill’s White Christmas”, a spin-off from the Blinky Bill children’s books (by Australian writer Dorothy Wall) and the “Adventures of Blinky Bill” TV series. The telemovie first aired on Australia’s Seven Network on Christmas Eve of 2005. In the movie the song was sung by Christine Anu, who also reprised it at Sydney’s 2007 Carols in the Domain.

 Weather-wise, Christmastime in Australia is very different from that in the Northern Hemisphere. Instead of cold, snow and spending time indoors, there’s lots of sunshine, lots of colour everywhere and lots to do in the great outdoors.

 This delightful song – “Christmas in Australia” – highlights the fact that, whilst these differences do exist, the true meaning of Christmas, the reasons for rejoicing, the coming together of friends and family, the excitement of children, the decorating, and the caring and sharing are the same the world over.

 “For on this little world of ours, we’re all one family. So, come and join us as we sing, around the Christmas tree.”

 “Christmas in Australia” deserves a place in the “best of” Australian Christmas songs. Unfortunately, it is not as widely known and performed as it should be; perhaps because the music has not been readily available. Hopefully these new arrangements for choirs and soloists may go some way towards redressing that situation.

 This arrangement is available in six versions – SATB, SSA and 2-Part for choirs; Low, medium and high voice for soloists/unison choirs.
