Christmas in July Extravaganza

1st Jun 2024

Ever dreamed of a white Christmas? Join us on 6 July as Christmas comes to Ben Lomond!

Ben Lomond Base, at the foot of the mountain, will transform into a winter wonderland as we celebrate the season with our first Christmas in July Extravaganza. Get ready to eat, drink and be oh so merry!

Only 30minutes from Launceston, the spectacular winter celebration will be complete with live music, an artisanal market, festive workshops, Christmas Carols, and a feast cooked over flames.

We’ll be bringing together some of Tasmania’s best artists, artisans and producers in a celebration of Tasmanian winter.

Start the day with a trip to the snow at the top of the mountain where you can toboggan, snowball fight or ski the day away.

Once Jack Frost starts nipping at your toes, return to The Base for Christmas Carols and mulled wine from Bundalerra Vineyard as you warm up around our firepits.

Feast on festive treats cooked over flames by Mt Gnomon Farm.

Browse artisanal crafts made by local producers in the market, or buy a drink or two from The Albert Brewery, Spreyton Cider and Adam’s Distillery.

Enjoy festive workshops including wreath-making and whisky masterclasses before dancing the night away to Tassie-born acoustic guitarist and acclaimed singer-songwriter Cam Tapp.

The Christmas in July Extravaganza is supported by the Tasmanian Government through Events Tasmania.
