Flower Festival Canberra - Floriade - 2018
Canberra, ACT Australia
WELCOME SPRING IN AUSTRALIA’S CAPITAL
The inaugural Floriade blossomed in 1988 with a stunning floral display of exotic bulbs and annuals, which grow beautifully in Canberra’s climate. The community embraced the event, making it such a success that it became an annual celebration of spring in Australia. Since its beginnings, Floriade has been held alongside iconic Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park, the heart of the nation’s capital.
Each year, more than one million blooms combine to create a stunning backdrop to a month-long festival filled with music, cultural celebrations, horticultural workshops, artistic displays, entertainment and recreational activities. Floriade runs from mid-September to mid-October and attracts more than 480,000 attendees each year.
