iv been told surfers will be a good place for xmas, do they have drinking bans on all the beaches in australia??-we will be landing in sydney on 18th of november, so we could head up to surfers for xmas then come back to sydney for the fireworks on the bridge on new years eve, would this be viable?

def viable. They ban drink on the beach at Bondi on Xmas day as there are usually hundreds of pissed up poms needing rescued from the surf.

Dont miss the fireworks at NY eve. Would recommend watching from somewhere like Pyrmont rather than with the masses at Circular Quay. That way you can stay in the pub around Darling harbour then get to your vantage point without having to be there hours beforehand

This sounds viable; as far as I know there are not drinking bans on all the beaches. make sure you book accommodation asap though if you plan on staying in sydney during that time.

mike an dave - 'Surfers' is Surfers Paradise, a seaside town in Queensland.
