December 25 is just not the same without Santa - this year the 'great' man will be arriving at the resort by Rural Fire Brigade Truck... we call it Christmas Day the Fraser Island way! 

If you don't fancy Christmas lunch with all the trimmings, perhaps you'd prefer to spend your Christmas Day outdoors on the world's largest sand island - so why not book a full day tour and explore Fraser! It's also a great stocking filler!

Fresh seafood, and lots of it, will be the order of Christmas Day with the resort’s chefs giving their traditional festive menus the Fraser Island touch.

The resort's signature Seabelle restaurant, popular buffet restaurant Maheno, the Maheno Lounge, the Dingo Deck (outdoors and poolside) and Kingfisher Ballroom will serve up a traditional seafood selection and the freshest local produce during their Christmas celebrations.
King prawns and antipasto dishes will adorn the Christmas buffet along with a baked ham and a mouth-watering selection of continental meats and vegies. The tropical festive fare continues with an assortment of gateaux and tortee, tropical fruit and a cheese platter.

For those wanting to soak up the sun and casual atmosphere of island living – The beachside Sand Bar offers a carvery menu featuring traditional favourites with fresh garden salads and desserts... and all with stunning summer views of the Great Sandy Strait and refreshing pools.

There will also be live entertainment in the Maheno lounge - where the resort's Atrium soaks up the sound and produces great festive acoustics. Christmas Day lunch sittings start from 11.30am and menus between venues differ slightly. Bookings are essential on 1800 072 555. Some conditions apply.
