Floriade Community

Whilst the flowers and festival return to Commonwealth Park for Spring 2022, the residents of Canberra also get to play a part with the return of the popular Floriade Community. Over 300,000 bulbs and annuals have been distributed to community groups, schools and organisations to plant out in their suburbs, bringing bursts of colour to the whole city.

Dogs’ Day Out

Dogs’ Day Out is an annual highlight of the program, a special day when visitors can bring their furry friends along to Floriade and frolic amongst the flowers. Dogs’ Day Out will be held on the final day of Floriade, Sunday 16 October.

More info on Dogs’ Day Out coming soon.
