Last week I had the pleasure of beginning my School Holidays early and I visited Canberra which is Australia’s national capital. Besides all the activities organized by the car club to which I belong I took time out to visit two of our nation’s treasures, The National Gallery of Australia and the National Portrait Gallery. My favourite exhibition at NGA was the Ned Kelly Series by Australian Artist Sidney Nolan. I am pictured with one of the many sculptures which surround the National Gallery and the orange sculpture is in the forecourt of the National Portrait Gallery. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to both galleries as they so aptly capture our nation’s history and heritage.
