Santa in a cave at Jenolan Yulefest

Jolly Old Santa

At Yulefest, before dinner, Santa will meet your kiddies inside one of our spectacular caves, and present them with a small gift. What a unique memory to take home!

Mouth-Watering Feast

Delicious traditional Yulefest dinner in Chisolm's Restaurant.

We will serve up a mouth-watering Christmas-style dinner with all the trimmings in Chisolm's Restaurant, chocolates, live entertainment and Christmas cocktails. 

Our Yulefest feast starts with canapes, followed by entree, main, dessert, tea/coffee and petit fours. 

Jenolan Caves Christmas in July - Yulefest dinner

If you love tradition, you can choose a traditional Christmas favourite like 'mixed plate of roast turkey, marmalade glazed smoked Katoomba ham, pigs in blanket, roast potatoes and brussels sprouts' followed by 'Christmas pudding with brandy butter, vanilla bean ice cream' - if you can fit it all in! 

Tempting choices also include dishes such as 'roast black angus, potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and onion parsnip ragout', 'Flambe banana with Nesselrode pudding and fig syrup' and the drool-worthy 'Strawberry and mango pavlova, with passionfruit ice cream' and much more. See the grown-ups Yulefest menu.

Kids up to age 12 get their own Yulefest menu, and can choose from dishes such as 'Plate of roast turkey and ham with all the trimmings' and 'flourless chocolate cake with whipped cream and chocolate sauce'. See the Kid's Yulefest menu.

Old World Setting

Historic Chisolm's Restaurant, with its old world atmosphere, is the perfect setting for Yulefest magic. Later, you can sip a hot chocolate (or something stronger) in front of our open fire.
