  • 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.
  • Attended a make your own tumbler session here and loved it. Instructor was really friendly and did a great job of stopping me from messing it up! Highly recommend it.
  • Great place to take the family. Seeing the artists work so hard in a material you take for granted changed my understanding and appreciation for all the amazing work in the gallery and shop downstairs. And with the bus depo markets right next door is a great day out for the whole family.

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.
