Floriade 2017 is the biggest celebration of spring in Canberra from 16th September until Sunday 15th October 2017.
Floriade first began when Peter Sutton and his colleague, landscape designer Chris September De Bruine, developed a proposal for a grand floral display to celebrate Australia’s Bicentenary and Canberra’s 75th birthday.
The inaugural Floriade blossomed in 1988 was a stunning floral display of exotic bulbs and annuals, which grow beautifully in Canberra’s climate. Each year, more than one million blooms combine to create a stunning backdrop to a month-long festival filled with horticultural workshops, artistic displays, entertainment and recreational activities.
This is the 30th year and they are expecting over480,000 attendees this year.
Please consider visiting along with your family during school holidays.
