Huddled on the windy deck, we were treated to panoramic views over the lake and forests while the architects of these extraordinary buildings spoke about the project that had brought them into the company of arborists.
Dear Visitors, The 19th Canberra International Music Festival was a resounding success thanks to all of you, the artists, the staff, the volunteers and most of all to the audiences. We will be posting reviews of the festival and also produce a CD of the concerts. Please check back for updates here and on our FaceBook page.
