Christmas 2023 PM STATEMENT

I’d like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas.

For so many Australians, this is a chance to rest.

To spend time with our family, catch-up with friends, and to cherish the memories of those no longer with us.

And for Christians, this is a holy time.

In this time of celebration and reflection, we express our gratitude to everyone who’s giving up their Christmas for the sake of others.

In particular, our emergency personnel and Australian Defence Force members, whether here or overseas. Our medical workers and our hospitality and those who give up for others through charities.

Of course, this isn’t an easy time for everyone.

I know many Australians are doing it tough at the moment, in particular those in Far North Queensland, dealing with the aftermath of the floods.

To them I say, you are all in our thoughts. May better times be ahead.

And may all Australians have a happy and joyous Christmas, and a safe one.

And please this festive season, drive safely.
