Floriade is our annual flower festival, it's been going for as long as I can remember, thousands of people visit every year from within Canberra and interstate.

It's a great family day out and there are awesome entertainment options for the kids. This includes children's concerts on Stage 88 in the center of Commonwealth park, food and drink stalls, as well as playgrounds and reptile experiences (which are supervised by professionals).

For adults, there's stalls with local and interstate craftsmen and women showing off their products. There's also sections purely dedicated to horticulture and looking after your garden better.

Even if you can't spend too much time out, it's just nice to be able to take a quick walk around all the displays with your partner or your family. Or even just by yourself.
