Happily impressed with Floriade this year - spacious layout of stalls/shops makes it feel more like old country fair you wander around without feeling claustrophobic by numbers attending. Flower colours/themes/layout very good. Only less than positive feedback is is the train- no timetable (even approximates...More

The flower beds at Canberra’s 2018 Floriade have themes and stories, and the organisers have done a splendid job creating these interesting designs. A ride on the Ferris Wheel with camera is essential in order to capture the colourful themes.

Considering the terrible drought and the cold winter the people have done an amazing job to prepare these gardens. Absolutely beautiful, better than I remember from my last visit ten years ago. Worth the trip to Canberra!

Tulips, daffodils, and limited to spring flora. I really wanted to see more of flora endemic to Australia. Not to say the flowers on display were not great. Just too much of the same thing

Floriade is finally coming back to its former glory, I stopped going years ago as it went downhill, but last Saturday was a nice surprise, its not quite, but getting better.

We had a perfect morning to stroll around the Florida’s. We enjoyed seeing just how clever these gardens were laid out and how although there were lots of people as it was the first day it was open, we could still see and move around...More
