Gather your friends around for a fun outing to the Canberra Croquet Club. Learn about how the lawns are cared for, have a lesson in croquet etiquette and play a game or two as you while away a summer afternoon. Participants will enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbly upon arrival.

The Blade: Australia’s love affair with lawn explores how green spaces in Australia have changed and developed over time. The exhibition highlights the changes in the Australian relationship to lawn from native grasses to pasture; from the influences of European inspired gardens to grappling with the climate change crisis and the need to create sustainable environment.

We encourage players to wear flat-soled enclosed footwear, bring sunscreen and a hat. To protect the playing surface high-heeled shoes are not allowed on the croquet lawns. Water is available in the Clubhouse or you may bring your own.
