ABC Canberra celebrates new building with an Open Day

ABC Canberra celebrated the opening of its newly renovated building and 50 years of ABC presence in Canberra last weekend with an Open Day.

The new Canberra building was officially opened a few days before by Commnications Minister Daryl Williams, and on Saturday the people of Canberra got their turn to look at ‘their ABC.’

ABC Radio 666 is Canberra’s local station, but the building also puts out programming for Classic FM, Triple J and other networks.

A local television news for the ACT is also produced at the Northbourne Avenue building.

Visitors were impressed with the changes to the old structure, which has been extensively remodelled and re-equipped. For more technical information about the studio fitout and pictures of the equipment see our Technical page report (click the link below).

Sports Broadcaster Tim Gavel (pictured), who was on air as the crowds of visitors streamed by his studio during the open day, said he was impressed by the new technology in the studio and the buildings new look.


The new building design, brings staff and facilities together more efficiently, cost $6 million to complete.
