Canberra, we need your help! Floriade is just around the corner and Floyd, our amazing Floriade mascot, has lost his family. Before he can resume his very important Floriade duties we must help him find all 36 of his family members which are spread across Canberra.

Clues are given out on our socials so please check our Floriade Australia Facebook and Instagram for updates!

Each time you find a member of Floyd’s Family, scan the QR code and enter the competition to win some amazing prizes. If you find all 36 family members you will go into the Grand Prize Draw – so it’s time to start searching!

We’ve put together a range of clues for you to help Floyd find his family across Canberra!

Clue #1

Clue #2

Four gnomes have been spotted around the city: One gnome is hiding out with some of Canberra’s greatest artists and artworks. One gnome has popped into a pop-up art exhibit on City Walk.

Clue #3

This gnome has been spotted doing the brewing in Braddon!

You’ll find this gnome EAST of the city watching the chefs spin the best pizza’s in town. Their famous pizza and gnocchi will be at Floriade again this year.

Clue #5

At Westfield Woden, these two gnomes are on display surrounded by models that are pretty in pink!

Clue #7

At the South.Point of Canberra three gnomes have made themselves at home in beautiful displays! To find the first gnome, come to the desk where you go to find things or people you may have lost. The second gnome is hiding amongst games, but you can’t trade him! The third gnome has his head in a book at Harry’s place.

Clue #8

In Weston Creek, search for three gnomes among beautiful home interiors, where design dreams unfold. Next, ascend up the travelator where cobblers craft and repair, a gnome perches aloft in the realm of footwear care. The last gnome is going wild for the coffees, pastries and pies.

You can find three gnomes in the ACT’s ultimate fashion, lifestyle and dining destination! Look for one bathed in light and one close to The Road.  If you’re not careful you’ll miss me at Tiger Lane, I’m peeping through the glass window at my Chinese Mum’s place, next to the kitty cats
