August is here, bringing us some brilliant winter sunshine, wattle explosions and a whole plethora of excellent cultural, arty and foody times that are guaranteed to warm up even the most wintery of hearts. This last month of the cold season will be delivering the goods, with plentiful theatre shows, art exhibitions, live music performances and delightfully delicious new restaurants and bars popping up across all four corners of the Emerald City.
