The capital’s annual festival of design kicks off in November with headline guests Kengo Kuma from Japan and Australia’s design hero Enrico Taglietti. Now in its fifth year, Design Canberra is hosting exhibitions, talks, tours and markets across the city from November 5-25, including a chance to stickybeak inside artist studios and architectural homes.
And we’re giving away a weekend for two to the capital for one lucky Time Out reader!
The winner will get two nights at the award-winning interior design hotel Vibe Hotel (only ten minutes from the heart of Canberra), which is renowned for its soaring seven-storey atrium and striking circular geometry. Fittingly on theme.
You’ll be well fed too by some of Canberra’s best chefs in design-loving establishments. Enjoy fine food and wine at Bar Rochford (winner of Gourmet Traveller’s 2018 Bar of the Year); and local ingredients and handcrafted tableware at the retro-chic Mocan and Green Grout. You’ll be treated to lunch at independently owned urban brewery Capital Brewery Co, and at the picturesque Lake George Winery.
If that wasn’t enticing enough, we’re throwing in a set of wheels. You will be loaned the all-new BMW X4 – with next-gen tech and bold design – for your weekend adventure. And, of course, you’ll enjoy a specially curated itinerary at Design Canberra.
