When you are visiting Canberra during September, you must visit Floriade. No entry fee. Dont forget to bring camera.. If you are very keen then attend Night Festival during long holiday in ACT.

“mixed bag”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Has become commercial and non local over the years. Used to have local apprentices making wonderful wooden tiems, now repalced by kitschy chinese imports. THe Embassy floral displays have gone . Among the lovely floral beds are now mostly cruddy stalls and rather poor food tents- though there are a few interesting displays now of alternative ways of gardening and that is a welcome advance on former years.

“Canberras premier event”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

If you want to come to Canberra make sure you cone when floriade is on.
A lot of effort is put in to create some spectacular gardens. Ride the Ferris wheel for a birds eye perspective.
Something for every one of every age.

Love going to floriade every year. Always a lovely outing :) there is plenty to see and you're able to spend a good day there. Also, the roasted nuts are the best!!!!
