Canberra Tea Towel

Want a memory of the capital every time you do the dishes? This colourful and quirky cotton tea towel ($25) designed by Irene Tan, the Canberra-based artist and illustrator behind Missy Minzy, features iconic Canberra locations and buildings, including Australian Parliament House. 

Classic Parliament Building Tray

Inspired by Australian Parliament House, this beautifully crafted and colourful timber tray ($400) features hand-cut parquetry design by award-winning Canberra-based designer and maker Chelsea Lemon.

Featuring an enduring symbol of Australia’s democracy, the tray makes a stunning display piece or practical platform for light items.

Our Bush Capital book

Capturing a child’s experience of Canberra – rides on the Civic merry-go-round, early morning balloon adventures, snow on the Brindabellas, visits to national institutions, the Floriade Ferris wheel and more – Our Bush Capital ($26.95) is an illustrated children's book celebrating our nation’s capital.

Written by Australian author Samantha Tidy and illustrated by Canberra’s Juliette Dudley, the book includes the landmarks, wealth of experiences and generosity of people that make the city so unique.

ACT Brooch

Designed as part of the Centenary of Canberra celebrations, Sean Booth’s wooden ACT Brooch ($26) is the ultimate Canberra memento. Available in different colours so you can wear your love of the Australian Capital Territory in a variety of ways. 

F!NK Water Jug

While it’s not overtly Canberran, it’s hard to think of a more iconic piece of ACT design than F!NK’s Anodised Aluminium Water Jug ($419). Designed by Robert Foster, each jug is individually pressed, hand-finished and offers the perfect dripless pour.
