Floriade’s blooms are still in Commonwealth Park so put the petal to the metal

Posted on

Canberra’s most iconic celebration of spring, Floriade, may have been cancelled due to the ACT lockdown but there’s still plenty of floral goodness to soak up in Commonwealth Park.

Sadly, we won’t be snapping selfies under neon light installations at Floriade NightFest or taking our pooches to the Dogs’ Day Out this spring—but that doesn’t mean Commonwealth Park has been forgotten.

Instead, the beds are bursting with tulips, tansies and more, with plenty to see, smell and photograph and despite the absence of the rides, stalls and festivities of Floriade, it’s still the perfect place to spread out a picnic rug for your two (and soon to be four!) hours of allocated outdoor activity.

While there aren’t any gates, there is fencing around parts of Commonwealth Park, making the Regatta Point Carpark or the path at the bottom of the hill (near Capital Paddle) the easiest entry points.

Naturally, the COVID safe practices of checking-in via the CBR Check-In app, physical distancing from others and wearing a mask are a must-do.

Don’t live in central Canberra? Don’t worry, Floriade is also blooming closer to (your) home this year with the same gusto as Floriade Reimagined 2020.

Portable planter boxes and pots that had been set to bloom in Commonwealth Park have been reallocated across the city around local shops, cafes, vaccination sites and nature spots.

There’s even a slice of Floriade to be had for those stuck indoors due to caution or quarantine requirements, with Floriade On Demand and even Floriade Video Tours coming later this month.
