Join us for Australia Day and night

13 Jan 17

Family fun and extended hours

Join us at the National Museum of Australia this Australia Day for fun from breakfast to bedtime.

Our World of History and Culture family festival is packed with an exciting family program including a medieval jumping castle, falconry demonstrations and belly dancing workshops. From 5pm we shift gears with bands playing in our lakeside Amphitheatre – free for one and all.

Exclusive cocktail party

For the best place to watch the Australia Day fireworks, there are limited tickets to our exclusive cocktail party which includes gourmet canapes and a dessert buffet. There will be DJs spinning until 11pm and Canberra’s favourite summer exhibition, A History of the World in 100 Objects, will be open until midnight. See you there!
