OK, so Christmas in Australia is a bit out of step with the rest of the world. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire isn't really an option and you'll be waiting a very long time for snow. But if there's one thing we do better than anyone, it's Christmas lights!
Check out the map below for details of the best Christmas lights in Bendigo (click on the pushpins for pics). And if you know of any we've missed, post the details and a photo to our Facebook page and we'll update it.
