What’s the best thing about the working week? Answer: Friday.
In fact, Friday afternoons are the best, and Walt & Burley at The Kingston Foreshore is determined to sail you far, far away from work with the launch of their Departures drinks down by the water after work every Friday.
Just grab yourself something cool and refreshing from the bar and let your mind wander to far-off lands without deadlines, computers, phones or the demands of day-to-day life.
There’ll be live music to soothe your soul and steady your ship.
Fridays @ The Durham
Live band at The Durham every Friday from 10pm. Free entry.
Happy Hour 5pm to 7pm.
Explore Australia’s memory of the First World War through the mementos kept by service personnel, political leaders, civilians and artists. Sourced entirely from the Library’s collections, this exhibition highlights the private experience of war. Among the many treasures on display are the original artworks of Norman Lindsay for some of his most famous propaganda posters and the handwritten notes of Billy Hughes from the Paris Peace Conference. The Library holds the papers of Australia’s key wartime leaders, including prime ministers Andrew Fisher and Billy Hughes, Governor-General Munro Ferguson and General John Monash. These are complemented by amazing collections of recruitment posters, war photography, maps, diaries, cartoons, magazines, histories, memoirs and ephemera. Keepsakes explores how very personal experiences of war become collective memory.
10 am–5 pm.
It’s official. Winter is here! If you hadn’t already reached for the gloves and scarf this year, there will be plenty of opportunities ahead of you as we head into the cooler months. Sure, winter isn’t as much fun as summer, but every cloud has a silver lining... especially those filled with snow.
