  • Really cool place. Can sit very close to the glass workers and see what they make. Can also feel the heat from the kilns!
  • Pretty cool to watch glass being blown & crafted. The make it yourself sessions were all booked out unfortunately but it'd be amazing to try so definitely book ahead of you'd like to do this!
  • A nice place to see the artist at work with glass. Make your own tumbler (40min session) and paperweight (20min session ) was available for a fee. Not many Exhibits but kids will enjoy the glass work being done.
  • Great place to visit with the kids. See glass blowing and various other art forms in action.
  • Fantastic objects. Got them to make some whiskey glasses for my brother's birthday

Where to stay in Canberra

To stay comfortably near most main attractions in Canberra, choose a hotel in the city's central district. If you're a bit more budget-minded, look for a guesthouse in a neighborhood farther away from the city center. Residential areas offer more parking and quieter rooms at a fraction of the price charged by big-name centrally located hotels. Rental apartments spread across Canberra serve as another cozy option and offer lodgings ranging from simply furnished to luxurious five-star properties.
