Floriade, Australia’s most iconic spring festival, invites you to immerse yourself in a captivating celebration of nature, entertainment, and community spirit in the heart of Canberra’s Commonwealth Park.

From mid-September to mid-October, over a million blooms burst into life, creating a breathtaking display of vibrant colours and fragrances. Explore meticulously designed flower beds showcasing tulips, daffodils, roses, and other spring favourites, all inspired by the rich cultural tapestry of Australia and beyond.

As the sun sets, NightFest (Oct 3-6) transforms the park into an enchanting wonderland with illuminated gardens, mesmerising light installations, and captivating performances. Engage your senses with workshops and demonstrations on gardening, floral arranging, and sustainable living, led by expert horticulturists and creative enthusiasts.

Floriade offers a diverse range of entertainment for all ages, from live music and artistic performances to interactive displays and family-friendly activities. Indulge in gourmet food stalls and regional wine tastings, showcasing the finest local produce and culinary delights.

Animal lovers won’t want to miss Dogs’ Day Out (Oct 14), where furry friends can explore the gardens alongside their owners, enjoying canine-centric activities and demonstrations. For a hands-on experience, participate in The Great Bulb Dig (Oct 14) and take home a piece of Floriade magic to plant in your own garden.

With free entry to the main event and convenient accessibility via public transport, car, and bicycle, Floriade is a must-visit destination for locals and tourists alike. NightFest and select workshops require additional tickets, and facilities for wheelchairs and strollers ensure accessibility for all visitors.

Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in the splendor of spring and create unforgettable memories amidst the blooms. For the most up-to-date information on event details, ticketing, and programming, visit the official Floriade website at www.floriade.com.au.
