Floriade: Reimagined – Canberra’s Celebration of Spring

Canberra’s celebration of spring has officially begun!

Floriade might not be going ahead in Commonwealth Park but Floriade: Reimagined is back and filling the suburbs of Canberra with bursts of colour. Over 400 planter boxes and pots that were to feature in Commonwealth Park are now being delivered to the community for all Canberrans to enjoy.

The boxes and pots, containing over 60,000 blooms, will brighten the city and supplement the 300,000 bulbs and annuals already planted by schools, community groups and organisations as part of Floriade Community.

You can expect to see bursts of spring colour across the city in a variety of locations, including town centres and local shopping centres, hospitals, and testing and vaccination sites. The locations of the planter boxes and pots and the Floriade Community and Floriade: Reimagined plantings can be found here.

The flowers are blooming in Commonwealth Park so if you’re outside enjoying your two hours of exercise in the park please remember to use the Check In CBR app and abide by public health guidelines.  

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.

Floriade Community

Floriade Community has returned this year with 300,000 bulbs and annuals planted and cared for by 100 schools, community groups and organisations in their local area, for the community to enjoy. Take a look at our interactive map of Canberra to find out where all the Floriade Community plantings are located.

This year, you can also experience Floriade from home as we bring the beauty of mother nature to you through a video tour of Commonwealth Park.

We’ll also be sharing beautiful images for you to enjoy from the safety of your home.

The video tours and image gallery will be available here later this month.
