Styling10 Best Australian Christmas Wreaths For 2023

Fancy sprinkling a little Aussie flair on your Christmas decor this year? An Australian Christmas wreath is the answer and we’ve put this year’s most beautiful designs in one place just for you.

An Australian Christmas wreath is a circular assortment of faux native plants that brings Aussie flavour and natural hues to the festive season. Available in a range of sizes and designs, it’s a beautiful way to celebrate our country’s unique flora at the most jolly and exciting time of year.

Some are packed with all the colours and textures of the Aussie bush, while others are pared back and let a single plant replica do all the talking. Whatever you go for, you’re guaranteed a very merry Aussie Christmas indeed.

How are Australian wreaths different?

While European-inspired wreaths typically use pine, tinsel, baubles and more pine, Australian styles celebrate true-blue flora and leave the tinsel and ornaments out of the picture. Expect to see the goodness of banksia, eucalyptus and gum nuts in Aussie wreaths – and sometimes even a few of Australia’s most cherished native birds and furry friends.

Whether you’re after something fun and playful for the house, or something uber-sophisticated for your front door, there’s a perfect wreath out there for every kind of Australian home.

Protea Wreath With Wattle Flower Berries, $89.99

Bed Bath N Table wreath with gum leaves and proteas.

While proteas aren’t actually native to Australia (they originate from South Africa), they are often paired with other Aussie natives because they work so beautifully. In this stunning ensemble, you’ve got rounded gum leaves with wattle flowers, assorted berries and those spectacular proteas. If you’re going for a pink theme this year, this is your wreath!


What should you look for in an Australian wreath?

For an unmistakably Australian Christmas wreath, look for designs that feature native favourites like silvery-green eucalyptus leaves, vibrant red banksias or some festive yellow wattle. You want the plants to do all the talking, so avoid too many baubles and too much pine – especially snow-tipped, because you won’t find much of that in Australia on Christmas Day!

Where is the best place to hang a Christmas wreath?

In Australia, many people choose to hang their Christmas wreaths on the front door for neighbours (and the postie) to enjoy as well. Other great spots to hang them are above mantles and fireplaces, on the wall near your Christmas table or even in windows. The truth is, at Christmas time, a wreath has a place anywhere in the home – even the pool house!
