Floriade

21 September - 24 September 2020

Developed in 1988 as a grand, one off floral tribute to mark Australia’s Bicentenary and Canberra’s 75th anniversary, Floriade has become Canberra’s most iconic annual tourism event and Australia’s premier spring festival. The floral display of more than a million bulbs and annuals planted across 8,000 square metres of inner city parkland is more than just a flower show. Floriade is a diverse, ever expanding program of music, cultural celebrations, food and wine, horticultural workshops, market traders, artistic displays, entertainment and recreational activities.

Staying at the stylish QT hotel in the centre of Canberra, you will not be disappointed at the luxury, service and great food!

For the science buffs out here, while we’re in Canberra Questacon is must! With plenty of hands on displays, things to create and discover, there are heaps of fun and interesting presentations and shows to enjoy. Another place on our to-do list is Cockington Green. At Cockington Green we will venture into the delightful and fascinating display of meticulously handcrafted miniature buildings from around the world. Set within beautifully landscaped gardens, complete the experience with a ride on the miniature steam train or view the 34 room dolls house! Then we will enjoy lunch and possibly some homemade scones in the Garden Cafe. There is something for everyone at Cockington Green Gardens.

With so much to see and do in Canberra during the Floriade festival, we are sure you’ll have a fantastic time exploring Australia’s capital with us.

Sunny Queensland. Beautiful one day, perfect the next. Once again the weather turned it on for Trusted Travel for our recent trip to the Gold Coast theme parks.
