Things to do across Australia this July

Things to do across Australia this July

If there's one thing Australians simply won't do, it's hibernate during the winter. We're a heat-led populous for sure, and the winter cold won't stop us from hitting the surf or heading out for a night on the town – no matter what the thermometer says.

Across the country, these are the things to do in the month of July...
