The exhibition is held at the University of Canberra from the 3rd of July until the 31st of August. You can check it out for free during the week via semi-guided tours or casually.

“This is a most excellent exhibition! The opening evening was very interesting with lots of key speakers passing on their knowledge and history of the women’s game in Canberra. It’s on for a whole month and I recommend a visit. It’s Boss!”
