Hotel Hotel is open. You'll love the 68 rooms that range from cosy hideouts to sprawling suites, furnished sparingly but thoughtfully with new, recycled and vintage pieces. No two rooms are alike, providing an individualized hotel experience for every guest. On three floors of the Japanese inspired Nishi building, artists and designers from Australia and abroad took a blank canvas and created a new hotel typology where guests are seamlessly integrated into a new urban hub.

Sophisticated Simple Living
Nishi is Australia’s most radically sustainable mixed-use building and apartment complex and represents the third and final stage of the NewActon precinct and responds to our more communal, more cosmopolitan and more world-wise ways of being. Nishi is the new beacon for more responsible, sustainable living in Canberra because it brings together the notions of community and environmental positivism in the one place.Read more

Tuesday April 22Sunken Stories of Old Acton—
Exhibition by Acton Walkways
Designed to be the formal centrepiece for the new capital, when Lake Burley Griffin finally filled in April 1964, its waters submerged an area of Acton already highly significant to the people of Canberra. Workers cottages, sports fields and playgrounds, golf courses, a racecourse, swimming hole, tourist camp, and nursery, once existed under the watery heart of the City.
With support from ACT Heritage, the Sunken Stories of Old Acton exhibition takes a journey back – and down – into the landscapes and communities of Acton’s past, sharing stories and images from those who both lived in and visited Canberra’s first ‘suburb’.
Exhibition open daily: 10 - 2pm weekdays, 10 - 4pm weekends
14 - 29 April, Nishi Gallery
