What’s on in Australia: July 2015

Western Australian Museum, Perth

It may be the height of winter Down Under, but there is no shortage of events to look forward to this July. Australia tours are a great way to experience all the things this diverse country has to offer.

Here is what’s happening in Australia and Tasmania this July:

Tasmanian Festival of Voices

Held in the cities of Hobart and Launceston during July, the very unique Festival of Voices endeavours to turn residents and visitors alike into singers. As Australia's premier celebration of the voice, the event brings thousands of singers, choirs and lovers of music to Tasmania.

The event has been going on for 11 years and combines performance and education. Those who visit during the festival can enjoy mesmerising performances at concert halls, theatres and outside stages. For those looking to learn a bit, there are also vocal workshops run by critically acclaimed artists, creating a Festival experience like no other. The event runs through until 21 July in Launceston.

Sydney Rock 'n' Roll & Alternative Market

The city fancies itself as Australia’s style capital, so an open-air market that focuses on vintage fun and retro style should not be missed. The eclectic marketplace features some of the best in retro fashions, vintage buys and great music. But, most of all, the event is a lot of fun.

Planned for 26 July, The Rock 'n' Roll & Alternative Market is held in Camperdown. Billed as "part market, part music festival and part meeting place", the event offers a great deal of fun – from supplying the goods to retro and vintage aficionados, to helping regular folks find an exciting day out.

Perth highlights world photography

Until 26 July, the Western Australian Museum is hosting an exhibition of some of the world’s best examples of photojournalism. The World Press Photo 15 features a global list of winners. Nearly 100,000 images were submitted from more than 131 countries. This annual exhibition showcases 140 award-winning images covering critical social and cultural issues. The global tour currently visits 100 locations in 45 countries. It is estimated that 3.5 million people worldwide attend the various exhibitions.

The museum in Perth is the headquarters for keeping Western Australia’s scientific and cultural heritage. For more than 120 years, the museum has celebrated natural and social history and has worked to make history interactive through research, exhibitions and public education programs.
