Geoscience Australia will host a display of maps, satellite images and aerial photography illustrating how the nation's capital has taken shape over the past 70 years. This display will contribute to the 2009 Canberra and Region Heritage Festival being held between Saturday 4 - Sunday 19 April. This year's theme was announced by the ACT Chief Minister's Department as Adventures in time and space.

The display shows Canberra's development since the 1940s. Worth noting is the growth of Canberra's suburbs as well as key iconic infrastructure including the Parliamentary Triangle and Lake Burley Griffin.

You can come and see the self-guided display of 'Canberra through time: from past to present' in the Geoscience Australia foyer, Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm (excluding public holidays).
