Sydneysiders, it may be getting wet and cold but there’s one thing to look forward to — Christmas in July! If you want to join in the fun but don’t want to organise your own event, then tag along to one of the many fun Christmas in July events happening in Sydney. Here are a few of the best ones I have found. If you know of any more, please feel free to share in the comments and I will add them in 🙂
Blue Mountains Yule Fest
Escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney and enjoy Christmas in July in the beautiful Blue Mountains. A wide range of hotels and restaurants are putting on Christmas-themed events and offers, so browse some of the offers here and lock in a festive weekend away.
1-17 July — 10am to 9pm (10pm on Fridays & Saturdays)
Get out your skates (or hire some!) and grab a date as you enjoy the romance of ice skating and a recreated Alpine village at Parramatta Winterlight. This event is perfect for the whole family, with lots of hearty winter food, performers and more. Entry is free, but there are costs involved to take part in activities such as ice skating.
