New conference and event venue opens in Canberra

The cultural precinct offers a range of indoor and outdoor spaces for corporate events.

A new meeting place has opened in the heart of Canberra, with the launch of the Kambri cultural precinct.

Located at the Australian National University, Kambri boasts a variety of fully equipped conference and event spaces, plus a host of outdoor venues.

For the traditional custodians of the land, Kambri has been a meeting place for thousands of years. The name was gifted to the university by representatives of the Little Gudgenby River Tribal Council, Buru Ngunawal Aboriginal Corporation, King Brown Tribal Group, and the Ngarigu Currawong Clan.

A lobby bar is also available for pre-function drinks and cocktails events, while Ambush Gallery’s newest exhibition space can also be utilised.
