Christmas with Clive - the billionaire's big day laid out

HE'S the man who has got everything - so what does Clive Palmer want for Christmas?

Love and reconciliation.

"I like to reflect at Christmas time," he told the Sunshine Coast Daily.

"It's about giving to other people, not receiving and remembering the best thing we can give is our love and reconciliation."

"For people who have been enemies during the year, to me people like Campbell Newman, to offer a hand of forgiveness.

"I think that will be my new year solution, to have good government for the people of Fairfax."

This day last year Mr Palmer put on a free lunch for more than 700 needy people at his Palmer Coolum Resort with the help of staff and 100 volunteers.

This year it's all about family for Mr Palmer

His Christmas Day begins about 5am when he visits his 91-year-old mother in Brisbane.

From there he's up to the Sunshine Coast to visit a couple of people in his electorate of Fairfax "with problems highlighted to them at Christmas."

He would not elaborate on how he would be helping out.

From there, he's on the helicopter and on his way to the Palmer Gold Coast Colonial for lunch with his extended family - about 50 people.

After lunch, it's back to the Sunshine Coast for dinner at his property at the back of the Palmer Coolum Resort.
