It is the usual policy-free zone of the Liberal Party and, again, not understanding his portfolio.

Mr Hanson interjecting—

MR SPEAKER: Mr Hanson, you have made your point.

Strathnairn Arts Association

ACT antique and collectables fair

MR COE (Ginninderra) (6.36): One of the heritage festival events I was pleased to attend this year was the open day held by the Strathnairn Arts Association. Back to Strathnairn Day was an opportunity to visit the Strathnairn property located in west Belconnen in the suburb of Holt and view the Back to Strathnairn Exhibition, an exhibition of memorabilia and photos of the property's colourful past.

Strathnairn is managed by the Strathnairn Arts Association, a not-for-profit arts association that provides space and facilities for Canberra artists and craftspeople. The property also houses an exhibition gallery and a sculpture garden, as well as a gallery which sells the work produced by Strathnairn Arts Association members. I know my colleague Mrs Dunne is well known to those involved at Strathnairn. The rural property has been associated with the arts community for decades and the open day provided an opportunity to hear many stories of days gone by.
