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.
For the science buffs out here, while we’re in Canberra, Questacon is a 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.
Explore Parliament House with a guided tour; the friendly guides will tell you all about how the Parliament works, providing visitors with an over view of the legislature, an opportunity to view the Chambers in session and then a chance to hear about the work of Members and Parliamentary Officers. You might even catch a glimpse of some of our country’s political leaders.
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.
All you need to do is pack your bags and come along for the fun! Each participant will have access to photos taken on their holiday and we have hard cover photo books available for purchase too.
