So what did the Poll's reveal?
It's official - tradition has lost its way even amongst the Baby Boomers with 51% of the ExplorOz audience saying they did not send Christmas cards this year. However, 61% of respondents said they were having a traditional lunch extravaganza for Christmas Day with only 22% spending the day outdoors. 58% of our audience voted that sealing the Outback Way (yes, there is real talk of this) was a "stupid idea" so pass that around 'cause we think so too!
And finally, the highest voted New Year's Resolution is to "take the big trip" (currently 48% of respondents). So, if that's the case make sure you get the most from ExplorOz this year by becoming a "Member" and you'll be sure to have the perfect trip.
See you on the track!
The ExplorOz Team
