  • A wonderful celebration of spring in our nation's capital. The colourful displays and festival atmosphere made for a great day out. Our new national beverage, barista coffee, was in plentiful, aromatic supply. A cherry picker or drone would have helped with viewing the displays.
  • Fantastic place for families, they have rides for kids, market place for adults and beautiful flowers for everyone. I have also attended photography workshops hosted by Floriade and was able to access the event before it opened. Great place to take a picnic after work. The onsite food is very expensive however.
  • What an amazing show. Loved it. The flowers were spectacular. Better that the Kew and Royal Chelsea show. I went on dog open day. It added to the family and relaxed environment. The food stands were great. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Once a year well worth it flower show spectacular eating booths satisfying great views from the ferris wheel easy walks around the lake
  • Pretty, but bring your own water bottle because there's no bubblers and they sell only trash food.
