Floriade is Australia’s biggest celebration of spring. This iconic Canberra event will run from Saturday 16 September until Sunday 15 October 2017.

They say that when you turn thirty, big things happen. This year, as Floriade celebrates its 30th birthday, we are fondly looking back on past event success and positively looking forward to future event brilliance.

It seems only fitting that this year’s theme is ‘rejuvenation’. Complete with warmer weather, spring brings renewal, revival, growth and change. As we take a good look inward, outward and upward, Floriade welcomes a reinvigoration and transformation of flowers, gardens, health and wellbeing.

We’ve made some changes that we are excited about. This year, we give our visitors more opportunity to enjoy Floriade, for longer with extended opening hours. The new opening hours are:

10.00 am – 7.00 pm every day, weather permitting.
Last entry to the event is 30 minutes before closing.
