Floriade

Floriade in Commonwealth Park has now come to an end for 2021.

We hope you had a chance to see the flowers, but if not we have some videos coming soon! However, we’re pleased to share that Floriade: Reimagined will be staying in place for a little longer!

The Floriade: Reimagined planter boxes, pots and wheelbarrows will remain in place until 24 October 2021 and will begin to be removed from this weekend when they’ll be returned to the nursery and prepared for next year’s plantings.

If you have enjoyed seeing the Floriade Community garden beds around town, you may be able to catch them for a few more weeks. Whilst the community plantings were officially in place until 17 October, each community group looks after their own little plot of land and will determine how long their flowers will stay in place. We suspect that all the community groups are loving their flowers as much as you are and will want to keep them around for as long as they are still in bloom!

The locations of the planter boxes and pots and the Floriade Community and Floriade: Reimagined plantings can be found here.

If you are out and about for exercise or essential activities elsewhere in Canberra and come across Floriade Community sites or Floriade: Reimagined planter boxes and pots, please remember to abide by public health guidelines and share any of your great pics with us at #Floriade.
