Floriade in bloom: Australia’s spring celebration

“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.” ­­― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

At least, that’s the way we are feeling now that spring is in the air!

While the nation’s capital is a great location for a quick weekend getaway, it’s never better than during the weeks of early spring, when Floriade takes center stage.

Australia’s biggest celebration of spring is set to return to Canberra this month as we get the chance to explore the biggest flower festival in the southern hemisphere. It will not take long to be immensely interested in the exotic cultural efflorescence around Commonwealth Park, alongside picturesque Lake Burley Griffin, from Saturday, 16 September to Sunday, 15 October 2023.

The 2023 theme Floral Wonderland invites you to explore the magical charm of more than one million blooms. Even though the tulips may steal the show, there’s a lot more to this festival than first meets the eye. Take part in workshops like flower arranging, nature art journaling, or photography. Meet the market traders and shop for a memento, or join a guided tour and admire the floral, artistic displays that decorate Commonwealth Park.

Experience a diverse program of entertainment, cultural celebrations, food and wine, market traders, artistic displays, and more as Floriade celebrates all things flowers, food, and gardens.
