Taking inspiration from a good old fashion school canteen lamington drive, this National Lamington Day, Bennelong will host their own drive with all proceeds donated to R U OK?

The Bennelong lamington drive will kick off from 12pm over lunch, and 5:30pm over dinner on Saturday 21st July with Chef Peter Gilmore’s famed Cherry Jam Lamington available to diners across the entire restaurant, including the bar.

On National Lamington Day the country celebrates Australia’s iconic cake, and Bennelong has chosen to celebrate as well by hosting a classically Australian school canteen style fundraising drive. Bennelong’s chosen charity, R U OK?, is a suicide prevention organisation in Australia, reminding people that having meaningful conversations with friends and loved ones could save lives.

The Cherry Jam Lamington will be available to diners in The Restaurant, at Cured and Cultured, and for one day only at Bennelong Bar. Guests will be welcome to walk on in to Bennelong Bar during service hours, no booking necessary, and try the Lamington.
