Christmas is usually synonymous with snow and in certain areas of Australia a 'white' Christmas in July is actually possible. Here on our 'beautiful one day, perfect the next' Sunshine Coast - okay, look beyond the days-on-end rain that we are presently experiencing - we may not be blessed with the white fluffy stuff in winter, but with the naturally cooler days comes a certain magic and snuggly ambience, perfect for celebrating a Christmas in July.
Much to my festive delight, I have sourced some top events to celebrate Christmas in July, four of which are around the Sunshine Coast with the fifth event being a tad closer to Brisbane but … all worthy of a very special mid-year date!
