Australia’s biggest Spring festival is blooming in the nation’s capital.
‘Floriade’ will showcase more than one million flowers in bloom until October 16, in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park.
This year’s festival is expected to attract in excess of 400,000 Australian and international visitors.
Free of charge, they can wander among brightly coloured garden beds that stretch across the Floriade site and follow the twisting shoreline of Lake Burley Griffin.
Floriade started in 1988 and has grown steadily to become Australia’s biggest celebration of Spring.
Embraced by the community, the festival has become a month-long event filled with music, cultural celebrations, horticultural workshops, artistic displays, entertainment and recreational activities.
