A night with ANU winemakers

Discover the history and impact of the Canberra Wine Region through the unique lens of our very own ANU winemakers. Learn how (and why) they entered the wine industry; what fascinates them about wine; as well as advice on how to pick the right bottle. The panel will also share personal insights on adjusting to COVID and overcoming challenges to continue their operations. Taste, purchase wine and enjoy nibbles!

2021 ANU Alumni Week - Connections through our community

It's that time of the year when the ANU alumni community comes together to connect, share and celebrate all the things we care about. This year, we have a week-long program of online and on-campus events to take our sense of community to the next level. So, no matter where you are in the world, we have something for you.

Explore our campus by taking heritage walks and sculpture tours. Connect with networks and attend insightful panel discussions. Watch a movie and enjoy family-friendly events.

Let's come together to celebrate our shared legacy, and all that we care about - our community, our University, our future.
