About the Canberra Branch
Anthroposophical activity in the ACT and surrounding region is centred in Canberra, the capital city of Australia. There is a small but active local scene centred around study groups, festivals, special events and supporting local initiatives such as biodynamic composting and gardening, therapies, and Orana Steiner School.
