Christmas in July in Ipswich
Christmas in July is a celebration that lets those in the Southern Hemisphere experience the festive season in a properly cool climate – and there are some great ways to join the fun around Ipswich this year.
Festive high tea at Wolston House
Christmas dinner by the fire
Grab some friends and family and head to the fine dining restaurant, The Cottage, where chef Mark and wife Angela are running a special Christmas in July menu for groups of 10 or more throughout the month.
With heritage surrounds, open fires and modern fare on offer, this offering makes for a memorable night – and it wont break the bank at $60 per person. We’re loving the sound of lemon thyme scented turkey, serrano ham, macadamia fig loaf, smoked kipfler potatoes and cranberries. Oh, and steamed fruit pudding with wild berry compote and brandy custard. Book on 3143 2644.

It’s Christmas in July for mountain bikers too!

Next day they are switched. All courses will be made up of fun single track with minimal climbing making them suitable for all skill levels.
