Floriade 2015

If you happen to be in Sydney, Australia this spring, why not head out to Canberra for Floriade 2015?

Dubbed as Australia’s biggest celebration of spring, Floriade 2015 is set in Commonwealth Park, Canberra, ACT and is open daily from 8 am. Entrance is free and the park closes at 5 pm (the Night Festival is ticketed and weekend slots are probably exhausted now). There are free talks on cooking, health, arts, and crafts, among others.  There are also free shows. Check out the daily program here.

Floriade 2015 runs until October 11, 2015. Here are a few photos taken at the show. Enjoy!
