Plumb on Tennant, Fyshwick

21 Oct

I’ve spruiked continuously that Canberra is full of these ‘hidden gems’ – often we only hear about these places because they’re where we live, or through word of mouth (often because other people live there!).

Nor is it found at Sage, or the Artisan (though they come close). But, my search hasn’t been in vain. I’m happy to say I’ve found it – and it’s at The Boathouse.
