National Gallery

The big highlight for us was a visit to the Fred Williams exhibition at the National Gallery but as photography is not allowed in the gallery I can't show photos of that.


  1. Love it! We're off to Canberra again soon, your post and photos have put another place to visit on my list :D)

  2. Did they tell you thank at the desk? At the AG-NSW there are sections where it IS allowed. I always ask each time. I am going there again tomorrow night.

  3. I LOVE Fred Williams!
    What was the exhibition like?
    Any good?

  4. There is a sign on the door outside. I was looking for signage about cameras and didn't see it. When inside I was snapping away and got pulled into line by the attendant. So I actually did get one snap in the exhibition but dared not publish it ... I was told to delete it!!

    If you like Williams the exhibition is worth it, a good round up of his work not too big and not too small.

    I'm with you Letty I LOVE Fred Williams.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog -  My Bright Field  - to record the delights of my new life adventure. If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.


Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.

Royal Hotel - Grong Grong

But wait, no trip is complete until a Royal or two has been added to the collection.  This one is at Grong Grong.
