We welcome you warmly to come with colleagues, friends and family to immerse yourself in the vibrant hues of our multicultural showcase! 

Highlights from 2022

Perfume making CHL

Perfume Culture in North India

This stellar event was a lowdown on the art and history of attar (perfume) in North India, exploring the culture and meanings of fragrance; interested participants also stayed on for a perfume-making workshop later. 


'Ger' up for Mongolian cultural immersion

Guests were able to explore the culture of Mongolia with a visit to a traditional ger and experience the Mongolian landscape and way of life through anthropologist Dr Natasha Fijn's lens at our gallery space!


Stargazing at the Oval

Guests enjoyed some ethereal stargazing at the Fellows Oval. Did you know that in 2018, a national stargazing event held here secured two Guinness World Records for Australia?
