Windows to the World

Here's your chance to travel around the world without the jet lag and price tag. 

Launched with our thanks to our friends at the Mexican Embassy, the Windows to the World showcase in 2015, will enable Canberrans to gain access to a new world and to experience the world beyond the embassy gates.

It's your chance to experience iconic buildings and personalities; the amazing food and cultures; and the beautiful scenery.

We also know that in providing this access to new worlds, we can help strengthen our community through sharing of knowledge, diverse cultures and new information and ideas.

Our Canberra embassies have been part of our local fabric for many years and it is great that we are able to provide the opportunity for many to experience these great cultural pieces of work, and to build on the essence of what it means to be a Canberran.

We look forward to seeing the embassies putting their best face forward in September 2015, and we look forward to helping in bringing the many worlds together and making this a great event.
