Celebrate the way Christmas should be celebrated: in the cold!

Winter comes alive every year when Yulefest spreads its cheer across the Blue Mountains with many venues offering traditional Christmas style celebrations.Think warm 'Mountains' hospitality, log fires, Christmas fare, singalongs and perhaps even Santa - and yes, we're hoping for a sprinkling of snow for a true 'Winter Wonderland'.

What Is Yulefest?

The annual Christmas celebration began over 20 years ago in the Blue Mountains after a bunch of Irish tourists decided July was a much better month to celebrate Christmas. Since then it has grown to become a massive seasonal event attracting visitors from all over the country. 

These are the best places for Yulefest events in the Blue Mountains for 2019:

Fairmont Resort

Enjoy a decadent buffet in the beautifully decorated Jamison’s Restaurant with a selection of festive favourites. Plus visits from Santa, festive music, storybook scenery, roaring fires, snow falling outside and bon bons.

Begin with your complimentary beverage before dining on sumptuous seafood platters, traditional heart-warming roasts, rustic veg and delectable accompaniments. Then end your evening with a well-deserved treat from the delicious dessert buffet… think Yule log, cakes, sweets and more.

Available every Friday and Saturday night from 28 June until 27 July 2019. Make sure you book in for this one!
