The best events in August
Tjungu Palya is an Aboriginal-owned and run art centre in South Australia, around 450km south-west of Alice Springs at the base of the Mann Ranges. This exhibition from the centre is two years in the making and is taking place across both Artbank in Sydney and Melbourne.
The non-for-profit collective behind this quarterly market, the Westies, is all about showcasing the Penrith region while giving local growers and makers an accessible way to sell their products. They’re aiming to create a lazy Sunday atmosphere, where you get to know the community rather than fight over the bargain bin.
Renounce your fast-fashion sins with fabulous finds from this haven for pre-loved fashion and other goodies. There’s a mix of vintage and modern clothing – it leans towards traditionally feminine attire – and accessories, as well as handmade jewellery and funky trinkets.
To get out of slouch-mode and smash your fitness targets, join these professionally-run morning workouts. The 45-minute classes at Macquarie Park Elouera Reserve are totally free, and offer training in boxing and yoga Monday-Friday.
