What's on in January

Throughout Australia, we run through some of the best events and outings you can enjoy in January 2021.


Port Stephens Koala Sanctuary

Port Stephens Council in partnership with Port Stephens Koalas has created a Koala Sanctuary to ensure first-class care to sick, injured and orphaned koalas. Now open daily, the Koala Sanctuary offers visitors a unique opportunity to see koalas in their natural habitat. A visit to the Sanctuary also supports their long-term rehabilitation, preservation and conservation in the wild. 

Port Stephens, NSW, open daily


Brisbane International Tennis

In 2021, the Brisbane International, now a women’s only tournament, joins the men’s ATP Cup in bringing 10 days of electric tennis action to the Queensland Tennis Centre. Every year the tournament boasts one of the strongest fields in the world as players prepare for the Australian Open. 

Queensland Tennis Centre, Tennyson, Brisbane, 6-12 January 2021 


Semaphore Greek Cultural Festival

The festival showcases and celebrates Greek culture and heritage within South Australia’s broader multicultural context. Many generations of local volunteers, including grandparents, parents and children, dedicate endless hours to make the festival a success from the initial planning to cooking traditional Greek food and sweets to serving hundreds of visitors attending the event. It is this community and family spirit that underpins the essence of the festival.
