Floriade Canberra

Updated on June 21, 2014

Floriade Canberra, Australia

In 2010 I visited Floriade Canberra for the first time. I was completely overwhelmed with the dazzling display of more than one million flowers. Just as well we have digital cameras!

Floriade Canberra is on display every Spring. In 2010 it ran from Saturday 11 September until Sunday 10 October, 2010.

In 2012, Floriade ran from 15 September to 14 October 2012.

All the photos on this page were taken by me at Floriade Canberra.

Beautiful Floriade

About Floriade

Floriade flowers

Floriade is a flower and entertainment festival held annually in Canberra's Commonwealth Park featuring extensive displays of flowering bulbs with integrated sculptures and other artistic features. The festival attracts tourists from around Australia and overseas in spring from mid September to mid October each year, and is considered the most important regular event for tourism in the Australian Capital Territory. It is also called "Australia's Celebration of Spring". After some controversy regarding an entry charge, admission to Floriade has been free for a number of years.
