New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Travel around the World for free
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.

If you are here in Australia travelling and miss your homeland, or perhaps you have moved to Australia and want to teach your kids about their heritage, this is the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your culture. For those of us who love travelling and experiencing different cultures, it is an exciting time to experience each one all in the one city.
The Embassies are only a short drive from the CBD, making them easily accessible to all Canberran's and visitors. With so many visitors in Canberra for Floriade, it the ideal time to get involved and enjoy the fun and festivities that these cultures have to offer for Windows to the World, 2015.
