Now in bloom at STEP - February 2018

Just look at the beautiful flowers visible as you wander round Forest 20 (just follow the trail from the Village Centre)! See if you can spot a Meadow Argus butterfly or a Two-Spot Hairy Flower Wasp! Seek them out for yourself in the cooler weather this week.


Australia Day Honours to Ian Sayers

HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Ian Sayers OAM. Ian was awarded this OAM in the General Division in the recent Australia Day Honours. His citation reads 'for service to veterans and their families, and the community'. We are all aware that Ian is a great Friend of the National Arboretum Canberra and continues to keep in touch with the Arboretum as a guide, not only in the Bonsai. Well done Ian!


Boundless Volumes exhibition at Parliament House

Excess leather bound volumes of parliamentary proceedings have provided an opportunity for the Parliament House Art Collection to engage with artists to create new artworks that reinterpret, reuse and recycle these incredibly evocative objects that span almost 120 years of Australian political history. Inspired by these objects, artists have responded by creating artworks that engage with the materiality of the books as well as the social, cultural and political issues within their pages.
