Ayla’s Christmas Wish is a sweet exploration about what it means to celebrate Christmas in Australia.

Ayla’s family is preparing for a hot Christmas in their dry country town. But something is missing.

‘We don’t have a snowman!’ says Ayla.

How will Ayla’s family make her wish come true?

Inspired by hay bale art in towns across Australia, from Tarrington in Victoria’s West to rural Kalbar in South East Queensland!
