Fancy yourself a picnic lover? Well you don’t know how to picnic until you’ve been to Floriade and experienced our picnic hot spots.
What’s more perfect than an outdoor cinema for a picnic? We’ll answer that for you… NOTHING! So with that being said, you should really get yourself along to Movie NightFest on Wednesday 26 September. Munch on some Belgium waffles, crepes, pizza or a Dapto dog from one of the many wonderful food stalls all while you relive all the classic scenes from Back to the Future (PG) and Ghostbusters (PG)
Stage 88 is the perfect spot, with an expanse of green grass it’s perfect to throw down a picnic rug. You can grab a bite to eat from stallholders or lie back, listen to live music and enjoy the spring sunshine.
A grassy knoll
There’s plenty of grassy spots to park your picnic rug! Take a wander around and pinch a spot before Commonwealth Park fills up. If you’re not in the mood to pack to your own food, you can check out Schmicnics. With hampers full of gourmet food and wine, Schmicnics know how to pack a picnic. The best thing about a Schmicnic is that you can have it anywhere at Floriade, whether it’s by the Narang pool, amongst the tulips or on a grassy knoll! Remember to pre-book your Schmicnic.
Relax and unwind in The Terrace overlooking Nerang Pool. Enjoy some of the local food offerings while you enjoy the atmosphere and get off your feet for bit after wandering around the gardens.You can also join CanTeen’s Secret Garden Party, a beautiful high tea happening on 22 and 23 September in The Terrace.
