Floriade is the biggest flower festival in Australia, a spectacular celebration of spring, set in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park.

Description of Services:

Floriade began in 1988 as a spectacular commemoration of Australia’s Bicentenary and Canberra’s 75th birthday. Floriade blossomed for the first time with a stunning floral display of exotic bulbs and annuals, which grow beautifully in Canberra’s climate. The community embraced the inaugural Floriade, making it such a success that it became an annual event – Australia’s celebration of spring. Since its beginnings in 1988 Floriade has been held in the city, in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park.
Floriade is Australia’s premier spring festival and a world-class floral spectacular. More than one million blooms create a stunning backdrop to a month-long festival filled with music, cultural celebrations, horticultural workshops, artistic displays, entertainment and recreational activities.
