Can you believe there’s less than 8 weeks to go until Christmas? Which means Santa will soon be making an appearance at your local shopping centre! And we have started to add these arrivals, parades and special appearances to our Christmas events calendar. But there is so much more to enjoy about November, with lots of great events to enjoy with your family.

What's On In November

The combo of daylight saving and warmer weather means BBQ dinners at the park for us. And we have shared 20 of our favourite spots to give you some inspiration on where to enjoy a BBQ dinner with your family.

BBQ dinners

Of course the warmer weather also means we need some fun places to cool off – like a nearby beach, water playground or natural swimming spot.

Plus, there are some great fruit picking adventures to be had at the moment within an hour from Parramatta! Juicy nectarines, strawberries and peaches are available to pick at the moment. And plums and cherries towards the end of November.
