Exclusive Sydney hotel dealsWhat’s going on in Sydney?

There’s always something new, and July is choc-full of food festivities, astronomical activities and razzle dazzle performances.

Running from 3–5 July is everyone’s Master Chef experience, the Sydney Food and Wine Show. Sample treats from over 300 exhibitors, watch live cooking from celebrity chefs and fill your pantry with exclusive wares. With every bite, you’ll be picking up tips to wow your dinner party guests.

Get spicy on a visit to The Rocks Aroma Festival on 19th July. Listen to live entertainment as you stroll between laneways snuggled in scarf and gloves, and feel the warmth of a specially roasted coffee bring a glow to your cheeks. Pop into boutique stores for a sampling of chai tea, or nibble on hand-crafted chocolate.

Attention star-crossed lovers and parents of kids who keep asking if you can see the rabbits on the Great Wall of China from space. The Sydney Observatory’s holiday program runs from 11–27 July. Learn about the galaxy with an interactive 3D theatre experience and then use the telescope to see the real thing. Other activities include star stories, 3D movies about planet surfaces and ‘Make an Alien’—whether it be friendly like ET, or bloodthirsty like Predator.

Or there’s dancing with the stars in the smash hit musical Chicago, running until 27th of July. Sit back at the Lyric Theatre and watch the glitz and glam of singing and dancing professionals as they transport you to 1920s Vaudeville with a tale of fame, murder and scandal.

Exclusive Melbourne hotel dealsImagine having your very own yacht, sailing over the horizon and waking up up to a new and exciting destination each morning? Ok, tell us we’re dreaming, but that’s half the fun at the Melbourne Boat Show from 2–7 July.

You don’t need a generous taxman to escape the world at the Melbourne International Film Festival. Lose yourself in some of the 300 films being shown from Cannes, Sundance and other festivals between 24 July and 8 August. If cool and quirky cinematic snippets are your thing, there are also 100 short films running in competitions.

Apparently, being in the black is the new black, but don’t take our word for it. Head along to the Melbourne Design Festival running from 16–26 July. Check out the exhibitions and design shows—mostly free—where you can even use some of your KRudd cash to deck out the home or office with designs of your very own.
