The entire floriade experience is a must if you never tried it. Nightfest was particularly amazing with lightshows, circus acts and nice food

Melbourne's annual garden show is 100 times better if you want flower and garden shows. Canberra has a lot to see and do and this is OK if have other plans as well. Compared to most other flower shows it's over rated.

You could probably do a Floriade once or twice, but after that it gets very stale. The entertainment is poor (if you can hear it, as the AV set up is never great in Commonwealth Park), the stalls are fairly boring and overpriced, food is not great and the service is slow, crowd control is - and always has been...

If you live or stay in Canberra, of course you must go there at least once. I've been to Floriade three times in a raw although it's not my choice. I always took photos and watched performances and bought stuff so yes it's fun. Nightfest was always crowded, but it's kind of fun to take the ferris wheel and look... More

The colours of Floriade are exceptional. As anyone who has been to Floriade can attest the camera gets a good workout at this event. Many keen gardeners and photographers litter the walkways taking in the vibrancy and varieties of tulips. The talks and demonstrations are full of information and you can get so much more if you get a chance... More
