Go Canberra!

The ACT (Canberra) votes YES to marriage equality with BY FAR the highest percentage of people of any state or territory. (Maybe they shouldn’t have stuck us on the bottom of the chart…)

Remember: Canberra has already legalised gay marriage in the past, but we had it taken away from us by national powers.

Half-Mast at Parliament House

The flag of Australia’s Parliament House, Canberra at half-mast for the funeral of our former Governor-General Ninian Stephen today. I took this from the car.

The sun reflecting off the metal is insane (so much for the so-called “cloudy day” here!).

Flags at all of Canberra’s national monuments were lowered for the occasion.

Flags across the country have been lowered to honour one of Australia's former governors-general, Sir Ninian Stephen, who died on October 29. Parliament House Canberra 8th November 2017
