29th of April a family fun filled day ofentertainment, starting at 9.00am with a walk and bike ride around the lake. But make sure your back in time for the Vrijmarkt (flea market) as from 10am till 4pm there will be all the bric-a-brac you can ever imagine. There will be fun and games for the very young and not too old like sjoelen, blikken gooien, learn how to ride a bike for kids and adults and many more old Dutch FREE family friendly games.
Just like back home in Amsterdam on the flea market where all these Dutch delicacies are available from street stalls where the music of a beautiful street organ will delight you. Where the smell alone will bring back memories of Holland. Unleash the Dutch within you, bring your family and friends; it’s a free event where you don’t have to be Dutch to wear orange! For more

Come one, come all for the "Orange walk" & "Orange bike ride"around the lake and explore Canberra
The Oranjefeest Bike Ride
The Dutch National Day Walk
One of the great pleasures of living in Canberra is riding a bike or walk around the lakes. One of the nicest and most interesting loops is around Lake Burley Griffin, Central Basin and the wetlands. While the route is about 1 hour it has many distinct points of interest. The bike ride and walk will be on the 30th of April, 2017, starting 9am at Nara Park for the riders and at Albert hall for the walkers .
When you have completed the route you will be rewarded with a beautiful complimentary Dutch Clogs memento, kindly donated by Oranjefeest. A party to celebrate the King’s Birthday of the Netherlands will be in full swing. No registration required! Arrive at Albert Hall for the walk and at NARA PARK for the ride at 8.45 for a 9.00 o'clock start.
