'Best of Canberra' Social Group

| Buggles
Join the conversation

Join a group of fun social people who are out to prove that the myth of Canberra being a boring place is wrong, and get together regularly to mingle, meet new people, and enjoy a range of the ‘what’s on’ activities around town.

Activities will include a diverse range of events, including concerts, live shows, comedy nights, live sports events, and through 2011 a selection from the plethora of regular ‘special events’ scheduled in the ACT including ‘Tropfest’, ‘Celebrate in the Park’, the ‘Fireside Festival’, ‘Floriade Nightfest’ and ‘Wine & All the Jazz’

Ideas from members for events are always welcome, with group members encouraged to host events.
