Floriade

Floriade will celebrate its 35th year in 2022, and for 30 days across September and October, Commonwealth Park in Canberra comes alive with beauty, colour and vibrancy.

The theme this year is the Sounds of Spring, and visitors will enjoy a vibrant display of over a million blooms set to a soundtrack of diverse live musical performances in an exciting program offering a range of activities, workshops, talks, food and wine, and entertainment.

Get your creative side blooming in a flower workshop, sit down for a delectable lobster tail and glass of bubbles, peruse the markets or simply explore the beautiful garden beds. Floriade has something for everyone.

Entry to Floriade is free, and the gates are open from 9.00am – 5.30pm daily. Last admission is at 5.15 pm.

During NightFest (29 September – 2 October) last admission will be at 5pm.
