Many hands have shaped Australia’s national capital but none more so than Canberra’s original designers, Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin. The couple’s winning entry for the design of a new capital took them from their native Chicago to Australia in 1914. They made their home in Australia for the next 20 years. The Dream of a Century focuses on the Griffins’ design enterprise in Canberra and showcases material from the couple’s practice in the United States, Australia and India, most of which has never before been displayed. The exhibition will be open daily, between 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Entry is free. For more info Click Here

Voted as one of Australia’s top 20 singers of all time by iconic peers such as Kate Ceberano and Michael Paynter last week, it is her versatility that puts her at the pinnacle of the countries music scene. Being equal parts pop, to vocalize jazz, the Elixir and George star promised to pull out all stops with a night of hits focused around the new album Songbook.
