Yes, this event is the one and only Floriade.
Blossoming into action, Floriade is taking place this year 15th September – 17th October as well as hosting the Australian Icons, Myths and Legends theme, so everything from vegemite, BBQs, and your token kangaroos and Ned Kellies of course.The Floriade enthusiasts would already know of the abundance of flowers and exhibitions that are on display but what about everyone else?For those who are not huge flower fans but do enjoy a great day of sights and sounds, lazing in the sun, relaxing walks or just an excuse to head out for an ice-cream, this is the place. There’s usually a program published of all the events that are held around this flower festival from scavenger hunts, musical performances, exhibitions, competitions, workshops and did I mention ice-cream?
Families generally love it - the kids get a chance to run around madly, exerting all their energies into exploring the imaginative garden designs while parents can sit back and enjoy the manicured tulip beds… and ice-cream.
So for your chance to take a peaceful stroll down the sculptured gardens, get a lesson in flower arrangements or to sit down amongst the flowers to enjoy the live entertainment while eating delicious ice-cream, go to www.standbyrates.com.au to see what Floriade packages are available for you this year at our fine selection of Hotels.
