Olims Hotel Book Launch

A launch with a difference! That is how we will remember the official release of Olims Hotel Canberra: Through the Ages. Katherine, Belinda and I were flown up to Canberra for the event, which was organised to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the opening of the hotel in 1927.

The book was launched by ACT Chief Minister Jon Stanhope at Olims Hotel on 12 September 2007 and as you can see in the photos, the staff got right into the spirit of things by dressing in 1920s garb. A great launch with a fabulous sense of occasion. A truly fitting way to celebrate the 80th birthday of a hotel that has a place in the hearts of many Canberrans.
