    About Dry July:

    When you’re diagnosed with cancer, it’s hard to find the time or energy to think about anything other than treating the cancer. By giving up alcohol for the month of July and raising funds, Dry July participants help us to ease the burden, reduce stress and add a bit of comfort for those affected by cancer.

    Taking part in Dry July gives you the chance to also focus on yourself - notice your own drinking habits and the value of a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

    The Mission:

    To raise funds to improve the wellbeing of people affected by cancer.

    The Vision:

    To ease the burden of cancer for every Australian.

  • Blue Mountains Yulefest

    31 July, 2017

    Blue Mountains Yulefest

    When Winter comes to the Blue Mountains theres a special magic and magnetism found nowhere else in Australia.
    It's the season for escape, pleasure, relaxation and a little over-indulgence. It's three wonderful months when all the famous attractions of the Blue Mountains are enhanced by cosy nights around roaring log fires, a few glasses of well-deserved wine or port, plus succulent Christmas-style roasts.
    Winter in the Blue Mountains spells Yulefest when many of the city's guesthouses, hotels, motels, resorts and restaurants provide all the treats and trappings of a traditional Christmas.
    The beautiful Blue Mountains are the Home of Yulefest which is why thousands of Winter visitors - each with a penchant for turkey, ham, chicken, stuffing, cranberry sauce, Chrsitmas pudding and large helpings of fun - return each year to imbibe and indulge.


    An Idea Becomes A Tradition
    The idea was born three decades ago at Katoomba's glorious Mountains Heritage hotel. Proprietor Gary Crockett was chatting to a group of Irish guests one cold July day. One of them remarked on the irony, for them, of winter weather in July and, as the snow fell outside, asked if it might be possible for the hotel to arrange Christmas-style food and festivities that evening.

    Gary obliged, and Yulefest was born. That night Mountain Heritage served its guests turkey and traditional trimmings, Christmas crackers and mince pies by the fire. The following year Mountain Heritage announced "Christmas In July" festivities as a permanent winter event. Word spread quickly and by the following season, many Mountains guesthouses, B&Bs and resorts had seen the idea's value for visitors and the region, and organised similar revels for their guests. Within a couple of years Yulefest had become an established winter holiday escape for Blue Mountains visitors. Today in its 30th year, Yulefest opens with another tradition - The Winter Ball, held annually under the auspices of Blue Mountains Tourism Ltd at a selected Mountains resort venue such as Mountain Heritage, York Fairmont or the Carrington. And in guesthouses and B&Bs across the region, Christmas fare has become the season's gift to winter holidaymakers with carols, fine food, mulled wine by the fire and quiet reflection.

    If you have never experienced a Blue Mountains Yulefest then its high time you treated yourself, your family or friends to a hefty dose of hedonism, just 90 minutes from Sydney.

    Most accommodation outlets offer Yulefest celebrations but it's now so popular that early bookings have become essential. For details on packages, call 1300 653 408 or http://www.yulefest.com/index.htm

    Many Australians celebrate Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival or the Lunar New Year. It marks the first day of the New Year in the Chinese calendar.

    What do people do?

    Like in many countries around the world, Chinese New Year celebrations in Australia include the following events and activities:

    • Street festivals featuring arts, entertainment and children’s activities.
    • Chinese New Year markets showcasing arts, crafts and food stalls.
    • Dancing, music and people wearing colorful costumes to welcome the Chinese New Year.
    • Vibrant displays of Chinese lanterns, firecrackers and fireworks.

    Many Chinese Australian families spend Chinese New Year by gathering together for a festive meal. Children often receive red envelopes with money (Hong Bao, Ang Pao, or Lai See). The Chinese New Year celebrations can last for about 15 days. It is usually a busy time filled with festive programs across different communities in Australia.
