UPDATED: Please note the Canberra District Wine Fireside Festival has now been cancelled.
Whether it be food, wine, art, music, sport or culture, there’s something happening to keep everybody occupied out and about in the region this week.
Special video projections from the Narooma Gallery window will take place throughout July, while the whole family will enjoy a visit to Binalong Community Markets or to Wagga Wagga Winter Wonderland.
Foodies will relish the opportunity to partake in the Canberra District Wine Fireside Festival, and chef Christophe Gregoire’s special truffle dinner at Le Très Bon in Bungendore.
Oscar Litchfield is set to hit the stage in Tilba, and Monica Moore will perform in Yass.
If you’re a daredevil, or have one in the family, you’ll love the Ride Park Day in Temora, and the Mini Shred event with Torah Bright and friends in Thredbo.
Have a great week, everyone, but to avoid being disappointed, check with event organisers and NSW Health to stay up to date on COVID-19 restrictions.
