Default DIAC opening times over Xmas?

Come the festive season, when does the DIAC close down, just the festive holidays i.e. 25th&26th December or a 1 or 2 week period.

Had a look on their website but couldn't find anything.

If you search back through the last few years you'll find the same topic comes up annually (several times in fact!!) so you might be able to get a fair idea from what happened then

Many of them will only be off on the public holidays. DIAC does not close for weeks at a time.

And in addition, individuals will be taking their annual leave so if cases are person specific they may languish whilst the person concerned is on leave for however long they may want to take. Most of Canberra is on leave in January I think.

You should reply on the team email address as mentioned by your CO. No need of his/her personal/official email address.
