Celebrate Spring at Floriade!

As Floriade, Australia’s premier celebration of spring, returns from 17th September to 16th October, over one million flowers are set to bloom in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park for the event’s biggest year yet. 

Developed in 1988 as a once-off floral tribute to mark Australia’s Bicentenary and Canberra’s 75th anniversary, Floriade is now an iconic event in the ACT calendar. Aside from celebrating spring, Floriade will be doing things differently in 2016. Boasting the most impressive schedule to date, the event will prove it’s much more than just a flower show, and there really is something for everyone to enjoy.

For the first time ever, Floriade will be the flower festival that moved. In addition to designed feature gardens on site, more than 100 species of tulips are currently growing offsite in 192 portable boxes. In September, these boxes will be transferred to Commonwealth Park and put together like a giant puzzle, setting the stunning backdrop for the monthlong event. Floriade welcomes some new tulip varieties plus mixed annuals to complement the floral footprint.


Aside from the magnificent florals and sculptures on display, the festival will also host workshops and masterclasses with industry leaders.
