Seems to shrink every year. But having a walk around the gardens you realise that the number of displays are not what they used to be when it first started.

A well organised event with good parking, although I would recommend arriving early. Entry lines are controlled and move continuously. The event itself is spectacular. Colourful and dense plantings ensure a visual extravaganza. We found the exhibitors with information were helpful and enthusiastic. it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience we will repeat this year

Every year we go to Floriade and it never disappoints. It's so nice to get outside and look at stunning arrangements and get endless ideas of how to create the same kind of magic at home. It is pretty much always busy but come with a picnic and make the most of it.

This is a fabulous attraction for those who live in Canberra and visitors. It was great when the entrance fee was disbanded. The introduction of the night event is a great addition.

Floriade is one of the most amazing events in the ACT! So much to see and do while there, it is a must see for everyone, not just garden and photographic enthusiasts.

Like many men, when I was told I was going to look at a bunch of flowers in a garden for the afternoon, the internal sigh happened whilst I tried to think of ways to get out of the afternoon. That was before i visited Floriade for the first time. Now I'm a regular visitor and I'm the one that... More

yes it is about the flowers, yes it is about the art but it is also about people and relaxing and perusing local art and local produce and have a relaxing meal or cuppa overlooking the beauty created by some very talented planners and gardeners.
