July kicks off with Melbourne hosting the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™. Score your seats to the ninth edition of this international soccer tournament played out at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium from 20 July–20 August. For rugby fans, the Wallabies return to the MCG, where they'll battle it out with the New Zealand All Blacks for the Bledisloe Cup. At John Cain Arena, grab tickets to the 2023 Suncorp Super Netball season.
Long July nights are all about the arts in Melbourne, from Southbank's Arts Precinct to the city's East End Theatre district. Dine out and catch a show. Get in quick to see the blockbusters Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, as well as & Juliet before they leave town. Or wander through the National Gallery of Victoria's Temple of Boom for an evocative reimagining of The Parthenon on the Acropolis in Athens.
By day, discover the goddesses of early cinema at ACMI's Goddess: Power, Glamour, Rebellion exhibition.
