Canberra's diplomatic corps had its beginnings in 1936 when the United Kingdom appointed their first high commissioner to Australia. Today, nearly 100 international missions are established in the nation's capital. International Treasures opens the door to these architecturally diverse buildings, which uniquely capture the culture and customs of the nations they represent.

Join writer Dorothy Hart and artist Isla Paterson, together with Major General the Hon. Michael Jeffery, who will officially launch this beautifully illustrated history and guide book.

Conference Room, free (includes refreshments)
