Overview

The Canberra Mosque, opened in 1960, is a simple building made of grey cement blocks. There is a large green dome on top, and framed writings of the Koran in Arabic, decorate the inside walls. The mosque is small by world standards and accommodates just 300 inside. Visitors are welcome in the courtyard, surrounding grounds and inside the mosque except during prayer times. Visitors should respect the Muslim culture by dressing appropriately. The five prayer times vary according to the season, but are usually at dawn, midday, mid-afternoon, sunset and night.
