What’s On

100 years of Kingston Power House

Canberra Glassworks invites you on a special tour of Canberra’s oldest public building, Kingston Power House which turns 100 years old in 2015. Designed by John Smith Murdoch, this building

was the heartbeat of Canberra in its early years. It powered the development of this built city, housed its telecommunications system and provided employment for many people across the region.

Canberrans enjoyed the spoils of the boiler which warmed the nearby swimming hole in the Molongolo River and set their lives by the whistle daily. This FREE tour will take visitors through the building, exposing some of its historic features and some creative contemporary glass additions.

Dates: Every Saturday

Times: 11am

Cost: FREE

Bookings: Required, please contact 6260 7005 (Wed-Sun), or email contactus@canberraglassworks.com
