Christmas in July

Stanthorpe & the Granite Belt reputation as Queensland coldest town, makes it the perfect location to celebrate Christmas in July.

Join us for a traditional three-course Christmas dinner in the cosy cedar-walled restaurant (complete with log fire) at Granite Belt Brewery. You’ll be greeted by one of the friendly GBB team with a complimentary welcome drink.  You will love the live entertainment throughout the dinner and there’s even a visit from Santa!  This event is open to all the family, so capture the Christmas spirit in July at Granite Belt Retreat & Brewery.

Christmas in July is one of our most popular annual events.  We therefore recommend you secure your Granite Belt Retreat cabin & event tickets early to avoid disappointment.
