WHAT’S ON BY THE BAY - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views
What's On

As the temperature drops, the Bayside heats up with plenty to do this July!

The colder months offer a different event style, and while our generous Queensland weather means we can still enjoy warm, sunny days, we love winter events for the excuse to rug up, seek connection and create unique experiences – perhaps around a fire, with some mulled wine in hand!
