Roasts and pudding are better when it’s cold out, right? That’s what makes CHRISTMAS IN JULY in freezing Canberra all the more special. We’re onto something!

Head down to the markets on Saturday the 25th of July to help us celebrate the cooler season the way it should be; with a raft of kids activities, Christmas carols, a petting zoo, face painting and best of all; store wide Christmas in July specials! We’re even decorating the markets this year, so you’ll be stepping into a Christmas wonderland from Wednesday the 22nd through to Sunday the 28th of July.
