Christmas Lunch | December 25

Christmas in the Moreton Bay Region is a magical time of year when the region is overflowing with Christmas cheer, from Christmas carols to twilight markets and scrumptious Christmas Day luncheons. Celebrating Christmas in Australia is always tied in with sweltering summer heat, so what better way to escape the blistering sun than to dine-in at your favourite local restaurant, feasting ‘til your belly is so full you might make a great Santa impersonator. Just don’t go driving a sleigh after your meal if you’ve enjoyed some matching wines or refreshing beers.

Check out the list of Christmas lunches, dinners, markets and carols here and be sure to book your seat to any foodie events as they’re likely to sell out quick!

Woodford Folk Festival | December 27 – January 1

What better way to ring in the new year and celebrate summer in the Moreton Bay Region than with a 6-day festival celebrating, well, everything?
