New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
A free tour to learn about some of Australia's iconic women
International Women's Day falls on March 8th every year, to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. One way to celebrate this day is to take a free tour of the National Portrait Gallery and learn about some of the iconic women in Australia's history - through portraiture. These tours will run the whole week between Monday, 5th March to Friday, 9th March, between 11:30am - 12pm.
See the National Portrait Gallery website for details.
