Canberra springs to life with Floriade 2015

Last Friday I officially launched Floriade 2015 – the nation’s biggest celebration of spring.

Floriade is one of Canberra’s biggest events, attracting over 480,000 visitors and contributing more than $47 million in direct expenditure to the Territory.  

Now in its 28th year, Floriade heralds the arrival of the warmer months with yet another fantastic program inspired by the theme of Reflection

This year’s garden beds serve as floral tributes to the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli, representing iconic symbols of war and peace. In addition to the beautiful garden beds, Floriade offers gardening workshops, cooking demonstrations, musical performances and a huge range of family-friendly entertainment.

Floriade continues to achieve outstanding results in terms of overall attendance and economic return to the ACT. These are exceptional results and figures we hope to expand on this year.

Floriade runs until 11 October 2015. For full program details, visit
