While your bed and blankets may be calling your name, don’t snuggle up too early this July.
There are plenty of awesome events happening in the western suburbs this month that we think need to be on your to-do list.
From kids family days to ceramic workshops, this July is jam-packed with fun!
Family Day at the Oxley Creek Common
When: Sunday, July 15
Where: Oxley Creek Common
The Peaks to Points festival is happening across Brisbane, Ipswich, Redlands and Logan for two weeks and features 35+ family-friend events which focus on sustainability and the environment.
The family day is definitely one of the biggest, and is happening at the Oxley Creek Common on July 15.
The day will feature live entertainment, activities for the kids, sustainability and environmental group exhibitors and plenty of yummy food and drinks.
It also happens to be the last day of the school holidays, so what better way to end them than with a family day out?
