Spring in Australia: Floriade

by Narelle Atkins

Spring and autumn (fall) are my two favourite seasons. The autumn leaves are pretty but the spring tulips in Canberra are stunning. I live in the nation’s capital and Canberra is known for Floriade, an annual tulip festival held in September and October.

We chose a beautiful Spring morning to visit and had a lovely time wandering around the flower displays before it became crowded.

And checked out the hand painted garden gnomes.

The kids went on a couple of rides and we enjoyed a coffee overlooking the flower beds.

Spring is a great time of year to visit Canberra and, if you like tulips, you won’t want to miss Floriade.

  1. My daughter and her husband went to Floriade this year for the first time. She adores tulips. I have never been. Will have to one day. Closest we have got is tulip time in the Southern highlands.

    • Hi Dale, I hope you have the opportunity to visit Floriade on a nice sunny Spring day. Unlike today, rainy and 12 degrees C maximum temperature! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
