Buy it tomorrow to be safe?

Failing that, things you think you'll need to buy in the next 2 days... buy tomorrow instead.
Or call the specific stores and ask them.

Are pubs open on christmas day? Quite a few people in England have told me it's their family tradition to go to the pub on christmas day after dinner. I didn't think our pubs even opened.

modt pubs are open but you cant just go in and buy a beer. you have to have a meal with it i think is the rule. sometimes its pre-bookings only too.


bottle shops arent. thats a fact.

boxing day is free for all.

Nothing retail is really open, supermarkets etc are all shut, bottle shops are all closed, McDonalds is shut.

I know some 7/11 which are open and some Cinemas are actually open too.

Sucks to be in QLD.

Bottle shops are open down here! (or the signs on the door saying so were lying)

Oh ok.
Being from Tasmania I can understand why you would be touchy on the subject.

Pretty sure most McDonalds are open Christmas day, two of the ones near me have signs that say open 365 days a year.

This really isn't an issue in states outside of QLD. Darkjedi and I are both from Brisbane and now live interstate - haven't once had an issue with the availability of food, booze, or anything on public holidays since i moved.

Well Exo you might be in for a surprise.

according to http://www.justice.vic.gov.au/wps/wcm/connect/DOJ+Internet/Home/Alcohol/Apply+for+a+Liquor+Licence/Packaged+Liquor+Licence/

Trading hours

Ordinary trading hours for a Packaged Liquor Licence are:

* 9am to 11pm Monday to Saturday
* 10am to 11pm Sunday
* 12pm to 11pm ANZAC Day
* no trading on Good Friday and Christmas Day.


It's fine in Tasmania however.

i just had a zinger combo which is now $8.30 ! and 3 wicked wings.
have to admit the burger was very good.
i always substitute a small gravy for the drink = same price

yeah those wicked wings are nice with gravy.

Oh, I must have imagined purchasing beer from my local corner store on Good Friday, and the sign saying "WE ARE OPEN ALL DAY CHRISTMAS DAY" in the window must be a lie.
