G'Day LA - Australia Week in LA

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Australia Week is a celebration of all the great things about Australia including food, wine, film, arts, lifestyle and culture and it's returning to Los Angeles from January 10-15. Started in LA in 2004, G'day USA has events going on all over town where you can get into the "down under" mind set or just inhale all of the accents, turn on the charm and see what happens.

Join us Wednesday night for the kickoff event—an art opening featuring the works of Jason Kimberley. He is a self-taught photographer with a passion for travel, adventure and capturing all that is wonderful and unique about Australian landscapes and life—particularly life in the bush. His self-published book, Australia Exposed (2003), was the result of a yearlong 4WD trip around Australia in 2000 with his wife Caroline. The event will be held this Wednesday from 6-9PM at AMBROGI | CASTANIER / GALLERY SAINT GERMAIN (300 N. Robertson Boulevard West Hollywood, CA 90069). If you can't make it, the exhibition runs until Wednesday January 24th, 2007.

Check out their calendar for a complete listing of events.
