I will be endeavoring to attend Floriade this year. I have been in the past and it never ceases to amaze me. The displays are fantastic. All that hard work that goes into them. A must if you're in Canberra at that time.

The Floriade Night Fest is worth going to but just be aware that there are extra costs when you get in the gates. There's a good atmosphere with modern bars and entertainment. The rides are expensive but there are many free activities too.

I took some great photos and my interstate guests enjoyed it, However, I was a bit non-plussed. Just a tad too much Nic not shops selling junk. This year I'll check out the evening session as dive been told that it's rather good.

Visited accompanied by two locals - quite impressive and very colourful - lot of thought goes into it and it's surprising to see a lot of flowers that are colours that are very unfamiliar to the species. Lot of people but easy enough to just wander. There was a lot of stalls selling stuff - like a fairground so just... More

Have gone to this 3 times since 2009 & the first time was awesome & so much to check out. The following 2 times was limited & the only change was the flower theme on the ground. The side stalls diminished &/or no change to location or what was on display. Don't get me wrong the yearly change of flower... More

A Canberra tradition- a flower festival to end all flower festivals. Lovely park with plenty of sights to see, some stalls and food outlets. Come early and avoid the crowds and possibly twice- day and night for the different experiences.

well worth a visit anytime you get the chance - whether by day or night. Don't forget comfortable shoes though, as you will do a fair bit of walking. A range of beautiful floral displays, installations and a few stalls to help you spend your hard earned cash.
