Christmas in July is a time to take a small holiday and put distance between us and our qualms. It’s a time to get warm and fuzzy with kindred spirits and mates. Each year we hold our very own Xmas in July where we hire an entire private boutique hotel in the Blue Mountains (http://www.bluemountainsmanorhouse.com.au/) and continue this joyful tradition.
We offer you two night accommodation in the manor with a full breakfast for both mornings. The Christmas in July dinner on Saturday night includes freshly mulled wine, a professional 3 course dinner, as well as delectable table wine with the meal. All this and the joy and ambiance G4P continues to deliver for $349 per person. Add it up! You won’t find a better deal with such a great group.
Your choice of driving yourself or purchasing a transfer package allots the freedom or camaraderie you prefer for your weekend away in the mountains.
We’ve scouted the area to find the best offers for our day trips:
NUMBERS ARE LIMITED ON EACH SO FIRST IN BEST DRESSED
DAY TRIP 1: A reinvigorating visit to the Japanese Bathhouse.
Japan and Korea are renowned for their professional spas and natural herbal steam baths. Allow yourself to breathe deep and let the magic exhilarate both your body and soul. Honestly, this is the kind of relaxation you won’t find in the city.
After cleansing your body, lie back in the beautiful Japanese Zen garden to admire the contemplative and subtle designs. You’ll love to take a walk on the reflexology path as you give yourself a foot massage exactly as you want it: taking a step at a time. Let’s not forget the ultimate luxury of a dip either in our outdoor hot spring bath or the indoor spa. Experience first-hand, the wonders of the purest natural underground spring water alongside a breathtaking view of the blue mountains.
DAY TRIP 2: Deluxe High Tea at the Hydro Majestic ncluding a glass of Australian sparkling wine.
Featuring majestic and panoramic views overlooking the Megalong Valley the Hydro Majestic is one of Australia’s most iconic historical hotels. With its understated elegance and warm ambience featuring plush furnishings, fireplace and charming artworks.
High teas are served to your table on a three-tiered silver stand and consist of petit pastries and a selection of finger sandwiches. Freshly baked scones are served with homemade jam and fresh clotted cream. Freshly brewed speciality teas and coffees are brought to your table throughout the afternoon.
DAY TRIP 3: Lunch and Caving at Jenolan Caves
Get the day underway with a hearty lunch at the Jenolan Caves Bistro followd by a 1.5 hr cave exploration.
You can easily view the massive chambers of the ‘Lucas’ – which is the most visited cave. This spectacular cave includes the most photographed limestone formation at Jenolan, ‘The Broken Column’ and displays a wide range of huge cave formations.
The Lucas is one of the most amazing caves, offering variety, the highest and widest caverns plus a glimpse of the pure underground river.
What’s Christmas without presents? Who doesn’t love a clever or thoughtful gift to reclaim back home? We ask that you share in the joy of the occasion by bringing a $20 Kris Kringle gift to put into the fold so everyone can get a present that night. Last year, we had a very eager Santa deliver the presents. Who’s been naughty or nice this year?
We need to organise deposits with the venue by 1 April 2016. This should also help break up the cost over a few payments which makes it easier on the budgets. We hope to see you as we head to the mountains to enjoy the winter together.
