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
