Christmas Day lunches in Sydney are traditionally a special affair with immediate and extended family coming together to celebrate the holiday, exchange gifts, drink and make merry! But preparing a multi-course feast befitting a great annual celebration is no mean feat, especially for the family members on kitchen duty. Why go through long and laborious preparations to churn out a lip-smacking Christmas Day lunch, when Sydney gives you great options to dine out and enjoy the day with the entire family?
Here are some unique X’mas Day lunch ideas ranging from a cruise to dining at the zoo in Sydney.
Pier One Sydney Harbour
Treat yourself and your family to a splendid fine-dining experience at Pier One that offers a carefully crafted multi-course menu that includes exquisite dishes from around the world. If your palate isn’t for exotic dishes there are simpler offerings available, but with the Pier One twist thrown in. Dine in luxury, catch up with family and enjoy superb views of the harbour and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Christmas Day couldn’t get any better!
Spend Christmas Day having lunch with the King of the jungle at Taronga Zoo. Don’t worry, you are not on the menu for the day as the lions at Taronga prefer fresh rabbit, beef or roo meat! You will enjoy the same royal treatment with a delicious fare of steaks and roasted pork belly finished off with moist puddings and custard with fresh cream. If your kids are fussy eaters, there are also specialised menus as well: chicken nuggets and yummy jelly with ice cream for dessert. Head to Taronga Zoo for a fun-filled family Christmas Day lunch in Sydney.
Christmas Day Lunch Cruise on Sydney Harbour
Wine and dine while cruising on Sydney Harbour relishing the good food and views that come by you. Celebrate Christmas Day with a lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour on a paddlewheeler that exudes old world charm, a contemporary catamaran or an elegant glass vessel that treats you to roving views of the harbour. Have a multi-course feast complete with a selection of freshly prepared meats and desserts to choose from. As there are only a limited number of seats are available,you better plan in advance if you want to experience a Christmas Day lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour.

Craving for some wood-fired meats and rotisserie fowl? Make the most of your Christmas Day lunch at Gowings Bar and Grill with some traditional lip-smacking fare that everyone in your family will enjoy.
