Our guest speaker is Fiona Austin, President of Beaumaris Modern. When Fiona, a long-time resident of Beaumaris, saw those buildings she admired were being demolished, she, along with a group of concerned residents, started this community group. Fiona will be sharing her love of this area, its location to the bay, the modernist architecture and its natural landscape.
Following her presentation on Beaumaris Modern, Fiona will talk about her ongoing interest in her Tasmanian family links to Holyman Airways – (which became Australian National Airways – ANA) and the family company ‘Modern Art Furniture’ which designed the furniture and interiors for passenger terminals around Australia.
