The Blue Mountains plays host to the ultimate Australian Christmas-in-July festival every year, with a sackful of experiences available to the region's discerning visitors.

Everything's on offer at Yulefest Blue Mountains; gourmet dinners, traditional high teas, excellent accommodation and even the opportunity to catch a show.

Top of the list of opulent offerings is the Hydro Majestic, the jewel in the Blue Mountains crown. This Medlow Bath property offers 5-star accommodation, dining options ranging from its casual Boiler House café, to the more extravagant Salon Du Thé or Wintergarden restaurants.

If theatrics and grandeur is your cup of tea, you'll be absolutely thrilled to discover Bygone Beautys' Traditional High Tea. Set amongst the backdrop of a unique and charming old-world dining room, your waiter, complete with top hat and tails, will deliver this decadent delight to your table with a degree of pomp and circumstance. Silver service, exceptional ambiance and an experience which you will treasure.

Theatrics and food can be found in Katoomba too, with a unique Blue Mountains experience at Hotel Blue, a delightfully charming property near the heart of town, which in the last year or so has established itself as one of the most vibrant entertainment hubs in the region.

This year, Hotel Blue are offering Yulefest revellers an extravagant dinner and show. On the menu is a contemporary Yulefest feast with all the trimmings; and on stage you will be treated to The Goon Show LIVE! "“ a recreation of the original British cult comedy which starred Spike Milligan (who wrote most of the episodes), Harry Secombe and Peter Sellers. 2016 marks the 4th year that this show has played in the Blue Mountains; it sells out every year, well worth a look if you and yours love madcap hilarity, silly sounds and naughty bits. This year's show features the appropriately titled episode 'The International Christmas Pudding', which is billed as a tale of danger and custard!

For the family who are looking for a more traditional Christmas experience, then the Mountain Heritage offers a Yulefest feast of truly Santa-sized proportions. A six course sumptuous dinner plus after dinner port is on offer with a cabaret show, a visit from Santa, caroling around open fireplaces, and an atmosphere of Christmas that December really can't match. Yule be stuffed, and very happy.

Accommodation in the Blue Mountains during Yulefest (June to early August) is highly sought-after, so it is best to make your decisions early. Perhaps the best place to start is the Destination NSW website; you can find accommodation options and much more starting at this page;

Yulefest Blue Mountains is one of the most popular festivals in the country, and given the region's proximity to Sydney, it's no wonder that thousands flock there every winter for truly unique Christmas-in-July experiences.
