What’s been happening in Aurora in July

There’s always something happening in our vibrant community. This past month was packed with school holiday fun, a special feature in the local news, delicious bites, and more. Let’s look back on some of the highlights from July...

Always Time for Cake

There’s always time to indulge in a sweet treat... it’s something passionate baker Kathy believes through and through. This inspired her to open Always Time for Cake right here in Aurora, providing the community with decadent cakes and treats for all occasions. All made with love, of course!

Hydrogen-powered home

An Aurora house made the news this month for a very special reason. The property, constructed by Dennis Family Homes, is the first home to run entirely on hydrogen. Its eco-friendly and budget-friendly innovations earned it a feature on 7NEWS. Check out the full report here.

Playgrounds galore

The sun came out to play and so did the Aurora community, heading off to the parks to swing, slide, and climb the day away. Local residents Aashima and Zoraan love making the most of living in the area by exploring the nearby playgrounds. Aashima enjoys the peace and quiet, and and Zoraan is a big fan of the swings!

Ferguson Plarre’s Bakehouse

Have you smelled the freshly baked treats on your way past Ferguson Plarre’s Bakehouse? A great atmosphere, a variety of sweet and savoury snacks, and friendly service are just a few reasons why this bakery has become a favourite among Aurora locals. It’s the perfect place to catch up with a friend or get your morning coffee fix!


From July 2-9, we celebrated NAIDOC Week. Held each year, NAIDOC Week celebrates and recognises the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Here in Aurora, we are honoured to support our local Indigenous communities by going to local events and listening to their stories.
