Canberra's most important touristic event, Floriade is 'Australia's celebration of Spring'; a flower and entertainment festival held annually in Commonwealth Park, that draws thousands of visitors from all over the country. Against the backdrop of over a million blooming flowers, the event's programme also includes floral art displays, craft and fine art exhibitions, horticultural shows, practical demonstrations and advice on home gardening and outdoor living from celebrities and experts, a 35-metre Ferris wheel to let you gaze out on the resplendent gardens, and a sizzling entertainment line-up, featuring live music, street performers, comedy acts, and dance. There are always more people in Canberra over Floriade than at any other time of year, so join the throng and head down to Commonwealth Park for a memorable, sun-soaked day out.
