Australia Day Picnic Open House

Celebrate Australia Day at Lanyon Homestead with music and an open house.

Cool down in the stunning gardens; bring your picnic and rug and relax on the lawns, to celebrate the 2018 Australia Day or enjoy lunch at The Barracks Espresso Bar and Eating House. Discover Canberra’s rural history with a free tour of the homestead.
Holiday music from Lanyon's past will be played on the verandah. Musicians will recreate the musical sounds of a living homestead.

Hear how the house is animated by the kind of music that would have been heard there in the early days of settlement on the Monaro: songs from the Old Country and from the bush representing the workers on the property.

Bookings required for The Barracks Espresso Bar and Eating House.
