The Canberra region has a dual history as both a

Canberra is now better known as Australia’s capital

intertwined histories are presented in this exhibition.
Explore the history of Canberra through those
buildings which, for a variety of reasons, have
been lost, salvaged and repurposed during the
last 100 years.

before heading to the UK for work and study. After
seven years of damp grey mornings and stress, the
change down under is as good as a holiday.
“The main reason for me to get out of the UK was the
whole lifestyle – the lack of time to spend with my wife and
my baby,’’ he says.
“In Canberra the sunshine is the best thing. That is the
one thing that gives me fuel for my life. You can say I’m like a

better. It gives me freshness in my brain and freshness in
my work. In England every day in the morning you wake up

Washington,’’ he says. “My forecasting was that it would be
more political but you have so many different people, which
Canberra’s cosmopolitan piazzas, relaxed vibrancy and
bushland full of native fauna have proved to be just the right
fit for this Indian-born business manager.
The move to the capital is Kaushik’s first taste of Australia
and while he hasn’t been to any other major cities he says he
is more than satisfied with what he’s found.

He has travelled from London’s concrete jungle to settle in Australia’s
bush capital with his young family – and he loves it. BY MARK SAWA
