There is a great show on at the Canberra Theatre Centre ( but tickets may be hard to get at this date.

Accommodation has been arranged at The Avenue in Canberra. No buffet breakfast is available at the hotel due to Covid rules in ACT, BUT another breakfast venue is highly recommended, just around the corner, is Rye. It is very good and we need to book: Menu ( Looks wonderful!
