The Treasures Gallery exhibits the Library’s most celebrated items. They illustrate some of the nation’s greatest stories, from Cook and Bligh’s epic voyages to the death of Burke and Wills in central Australia and the Mabo land rights case. Recently refreshed, the gallery features one of the earliest drawings of the polar bear, the first European depiction of an Australian bird, a book of verse inscribed by Henry Lawson to his wife and a bookcase carved by the young Dorothea Mackellar. It also displays the recently listed Memory of the World Gallipoli Letter written by Keith Murdoch in 1915.

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.

Of course we will be offering our full range of wines by the glass on the evening.

Plenty of friends of OutInCanberra were recognised for their efforts. Here are just a few of the worthy recipients.
