I have been to Floriade every year since it started in 1988. It features beds of tulips and other bulbs with a different theme each year. There is also Nightfest, where the park opens at nighttime, with performances and other entertainments.

We have been regularly visiting Floriade since my first daughter was born. There's a quiz for the kids to enter, music and other entertainment, and lots of interesting displays. Food is varied and plentiful, or you can bring your own picnic and enjoy the area and free musical entertainment. The stalls are a bounty of interesting products ranging from plant... More

Every year has a different theme u ti is always stunning. A great free day out but it is also worth buying a ticket for one of the nights that it is open and seeing the display in a whole new light

I like visiting Floriade every year, I often take our lunch/snacks as there never seems to be any cafes that offer gluten free foods or vegetarian. Sometimes even a cup of tea can be expensive but flowers are wonderful to look at, it is a shame not many have any perfume to match their beauty.

Well worth the visit. Locals return often and variety of craft and garden stalls to wonder around. Visitors will love it, locals might get bored over time with displays, how many ways can you plant out bulbs?

I love Floriad, I go every year, with the beautiful flowers, and cooking demonstrations, with free taste testing, circus acts, free petting zoo, and crafts for the kids. Free music shows, it's a must do every week end Floriade is on. I go every weekend as the flowers are constantly changing. Night time Floriade is amazing with the light shows.... More

This is a fantastic floral display that caters for young and old .i would suggest that you get there fairly early so you can find somewhere to park or there are various places to park within walki g distance to Floriade. We have been numerous times and are never disappointed with the beautiful displays.

Every year Canberra puts on a wonderful display of flowers, food and entertainment at Commonwealth Park. Parking can be at a premium but if you don't mind walking, park on the other side of the lake and walk across. On a lovely day it's very pleasant

Floriade is one of the major tourist attraction in Canberra during spring. There are many beautiful flowers to be enjoyed and worth multiple visits, especially as it is free! Coach loads arrive on the weekends so a mid-week visit would be best.
