Floriade fantastic for garden lovers: beautiful pics 21

Floriade is coming… I repeat Floriade is coming.  The month-long festival runs from Saturday 12 September until Sunday 11 October 2015 in Canberra and quite frankly, its some of the best cooler weather tulip and floral displays that Australia has…

Canberra’s cold and frosty winters offer the perfect nurturing conditions for more than a million tulips and annuals that are planted so that they all cue together in spring right across from the landmark Lake Burley Griffin. It used just to be a daytime event, but now it is known as a day and night celebration of the beauty of spring and floral wonder.  The nightfest runs for just five nights and is well worth coming.

Do you seek out the beauty of nature?

Enjoy the photos that are creeping out of Canberra this week ahead of the kickoff of the event.

  1. I took my mother to Canberra to see Floriade five years ago. We did it at night. It was beautiful!

  2. I lived in Canberra for 11 years. This was prior to Floriade. I hope to get back there one day just to see Floriade. I still have friends in Canberra.

  3. I have just walked around Queens park and Laurel Bank park in Toowoomba. All ready for Carnival. A wonderful tribute to all the hard work put in by the council boys. It’s amazing. Thank you
