Being my first time at Floriade, the displays were second to none. The amenities and parking were also tops. Well done Canberra - you sure know how to put on a show.

Recommend a couple of visits as the number of flowers blooming changes each week. Great day out. Take your hats and sunscreen and take your time to take it all in and browse all the shops. Popcorn and donuts were scrumptious!!!

Floriade is great if you're passing but I often wonder what people think when they travel from out of town, purely for Floriade. You'll see a lot of tulips, some garden art, some food and product stalls that you'd find at a weekend market, and...More

The Floriade flower beds are only displayed for one months, namely, from around 15 September to 14 October. If you are late, you have missed the wonderful display. Hope you can make it by then.
