Floriade blooms this September

Floriade blooms from September 15 - October 14, transforming Canberra into a living, breathing bouquet of over a million bulbs to celebrate the start of Spring. Food stalls, twilight installations, and Canberra City YHA is a mere 8 minute petal-filled stroll away!


Springtime - is there anything more worth celebrating?!

Floriade is the official welcoming of Spring in Canberra, and sees over a million blooms transform our capital into a living, breathing bouquet of flowers, food, entertainment and twilight tomfoolery. Open from 9.30am - 5.30pm each day, you'll stroll through explosions of colour and fragrance, with even floral efficianados learning a thing or two. 

The culture rises when the sun sets, with evenings spilling to the brim with comedians, musicians, installations and food trucks at Nighfest - where the colour explosions continue! All event info can be found here, and believe us when we say it's a truly magical way to spend a few nights! 

Alright - I'm sold. Where am I sleeping?

Relax - we've got you covered. Our gorgeous, very central (8 minutes' walk away!) and very well equipped (hello indoor pool, sauna and spa!) Canberra City YHA is running a Floriade Special. Stay two nights, enjoy breakfast daily, Premium Wi-Fi and a days' bike hire! Book here (you know you want to!).
