|THE HANNAH CABINET AT BUNGENDORE WOOD WORKS GALLERY|
|Geoff Hannah was born in 1948 in the Northern Rivers Region of NSW and studied as an apprentice cabinetmaker from the age of fifteen before starting his own business in 1973. Awarded a Churchill Fellowship in 1980, Geoff travelled to England and France to study furniture from the period 1635–1850. Time spent in the workshops of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the Palace of Versailles, France, were particular highlights of his study tour, as were his special privileges and after hours visits in the Louvre, Paris.
The Hannah Cabinet is Geoff Hannah's latest masterpiece and was made over a six year period using thirty-four different Australian and international timbers, four species of shell and seventeen varieties of precisious stone with extensive marquetry inlays on eighteen doors and on, and in, one hundred and forty drawers.
The Hannah Cabinet will be on show at the Bungendore Wood Works Gallery until 20 November 2013.

| The Centenary of Canberra, our nation's capital, tells the story of our country's freedom, spirit, achievements and aspirations.
In 2013, we celebrate 100 years since Lady Denman, wife of then Governor-General Lord Denman, stood upon the newly laid Foundation Stones and announced that the name of the new Australian capital would be Canberra.
The Centenary of Canberra is an opportunity for all Australians to celebrate this momentous occasion in our country’s history and to explore the many facets — local, regional, national and international — of our nation’s capital.
The year-long program will include new and exciting projects, but equally it will showcase the very best of what’s already happening in Canberra each year — the people, the places, the events that contribute to Canberra’s role in our national story. The ambition behind this program is to create lasting legacies that will benefit generations of Australians to come and lead Canberra confidently into the journey of the next hundred years.

|We are often asked for assistance in finding out information pertaining to families who lived in the Bungendore area and unfortunately we are unable to help as there is no longer a Bungendore Historical Society in existence. However, anyone interested in discovering more about their family or the Bungendore area in general should contact the Canberra and District Historical Society which is situated in Canberra in the Curtin shopping area. They hold all of the old records of previous Bungendore Historical groups and the staff are very helpful.|
|If you are interested in taking a trip on an old steam train from Canberra to Bungendore, please refer to Canberra Heritage Rail. This will take you to the website which gives information on current trips and events.|
|Unfortunately we no longer have a Visitors Centre in Bungendore. Please refer to the Bungendore Chamber of Commerce for all Visitor enquiries.
However, the Bungendore Village Guide is published each year and is a terrific resource for visitors to Bungendore. These can be obtained from major Visitors Centres, smaller centres throughout NSW and many of the Canberra attractions. Please click on the link above for the pdf version.
|We are often asked for information on Canberra — what to do and what to see. As we are primarily an information site for Bungendore with only a little on Queanbeyan and Canberra, it is best to contact the Canberra and Region Visitors Centre for detailed information on Canberra.|
|One of the highlights of living close to the nation's capital, is the wide range of museums, galleries, memorials and nature parks that one can visit. Around Canberra highlights all the major attractions that Canberra has to offer (and two museums in Queanbeyan). This has made it much easier for our family to pick an activity or centre to visit either on a weekend or during the school holidays. If you are looking for something to do on a weekend and the choice is overwhelming, check out Around Canberra and click on a website for further details. There may be places that you hadn't thought of before to visit and enjoy!|
