Windows to the World is a rare opportunity for the public to get inside the Embassies of Canberra for Open Days and learn more about the countries involved. There will be tourism displays, fashion parades, kids activities, tours, food markets stalls and cultural performances. The events are free, however some Embassies require a ticket that you need to book online. The remaining have Open Days where you can just turn up and enjoy the festivities.
