Floriade, Australia’s biggest celebration of spring, now in its 27th year, returns to Canberra this September. This month long iconic tourism event is the largest floral festival in the Southern hemisphere. Running from the 12th September to the 11th of October 2015, Floriade attracts more than 400,000 local, interstate and international visitors each year.
Canberra comes alive in a stunning array of colour with over one million blooms displayed in themed garden beds in Commonwealth Park on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin. This 30-day celebration has something for everyone, not just gardening buffs. Cooking demonstration, horticultural workshops, gardening tips and recreational activities for kids and families as well as live entertainment ensure that everyone is catered for. One of the best things about Floriade is that this event is free!
No trip to Floriade is complete without experiencing Nightfest. For five nights only from 24th September through to the 28th September, Commonwealth Park transforms into an illuminated wonderland of vibrant colour and stunning lighting designs. Be entertained by live music, comedy and DJ’s, wander around the night markets or simply sit back with a cocktail and soak up the cool vibe. Tickets for Nightfest go on sale early August.
