It really is the most wonderful time of year, Christmas trees fill the city, holiday music playing on every speaker and special gifts being picked out day for loved ones.
But there is always one big question consuming everyone’s minds – where are we going to celebrate Christmas Day?
Fortunately, this year Greenfields Albert Park has taken the guess work out of the equation, and created one magical day filled with amazing food, drinks and activities for the entire family.
So, what makes Christmas Day a Greenfields Albert Park so special?
For starters the location itself …
Known as Melbourne’s favourite Urban getaway, Greenfields Albert Park offers the perfect canvas for a spectacular event, surrounded by the luscious greenery of the ovals and the serenity of the famous Albert Park Lake, guests are guaranteed to feel relaxed from the moment they arrive.
The team at are firm believers in the idea that Christmas is all about family, community and a good time and their Christmas event is a direct reflection of that with something for every member for the family.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without one special guest. The big man from the North Pole will be there for a meet and greet with the kids – and those who are a kid at heart .
Ahead of this spectacular event, I sat down with the team to get a little sneak peak at what we can expect …
This sounds like such wonderful way to celebrate the day – What can guests expect at this year’s Christmas Lunch celebration?
It is set to be a truly amazing day. Families can expect to feel totally at ease in the venue, and be able to truly settle in and embrace the Christmas spirit.
Fantastic food, fantastic service and a fantastic time.
What are some of the menu highlights?
It’s all pretty spectacular, but the stuffed calamari and chargrilled broccolini are always crowd favourites! You can check the menu out on the Greenfields Albert Park website, in the What’s On section.
I must say, I had a sneak peak of the menu – and it does not disappoint!
Ranging from adult to vegetarian and of course kids – with delicious treats such as; Roasted Turkey with toasted hazelnuts and a cranberry truffled jus, Ricotta and spinach ravioli with smoked tomatoe puree and for the munchkins – mini chicken skewers with fried rice.
And if, like me, you have a soft spot for desserts – the Chocolate Valrhona cramelia tarts, summer berries and Italian meringue sounds absolutely divine!
