Just as Toronto hunkers down for snow, an “Aussie Biosphere” is being built in Dundas Square in preparation for G’Day Toronto: Australia Week 2007, running from Feb. 15 to 18.


The event will showcase Australian entertainers, music, art, film, food and wine. Tickets for G’Day Toronto events are on sale at www.australiaweek.ca.


A highlight of the four-day program will be the Penfolds Sounds of Silence Gala Dinner on Saturday Feb. 17, themed around Australia’s iconic Sounds of Silence dining experience, which takes place under the stars in the Australian outback. Other events inside the biosphere will include a sold-out Aussie Music Night featuring multi platinum artists Silverchair, the Canadian premiere of a critically acclaimed Australian film (Kenny the Movie) and the Surf’s Up! Sydney Foam Party featuring one of Australia’s hottest DJs, Jayson Forbes, plus drag queens and much more.
