She’s the high powered Hollywood actress who’s enjoyed a stellar 2017.

And Nicole Kidman will cap off her big year by returning to her native Australia for Christmas.

Speaking with US Weekly, the 50-year-old acting icon revealed her plans to spend the festive season by the beach with husband Keith Urban and their daughters, Sunday and Faith, as well as their extended families.

‘We have a big summer Christmas, which I know sounds bizarre to Americans’ the Oscar-winner told the publication.

‘We go back for the heat. We want to be on the beach for Christmas, no snow,’ she added.

Nicole celebrates Christmas as a practicing Catholic, and it’s believed she will spend time with her mother, Janelle, who lives in Sydney, as well as Keith’s mother, Marienne, who is based on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

It appears returning home for the festive holiday is somewhat of a tradition, as the brood also spent last Christmas Down Under.

The beauty’s comments come just a day after she revealed plans to work in Australia far more in the future.

Speaking with The Sunday Telegraph, Nicole dished details about ‘coming back and really giving support’ to the local film and television industry.

 It comes after the Hollywood star took home Best Supporting Actress at Australia’s AACTA Awards last week.

The talented star won the gong for her roles in Lion and Top Of The Lake: China Girl on Wednesday night.

It caps off a huge year for the star who also scored Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA nods for Lion.

In addition to her critical acclaim for that film, the talent also won an Emmy for her role on the blockbuster miniseries Big Little Lies, which she also produced.

Nicole was also named as one of the ten best performers of the year by The New York Times for her roles in this year’s praised movies, The Beguiled and Killing Of A Sacred Deer.
