Lacking ideas for what to do with the kids during school holidays…. why not visit Australia’s most celebrated flower festival Floriade in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park which will be running till 14 October.

We are giving away one night’s accommodation for a family of four in Canberra as well as tickets to ride on the Illuminated and Highly Instagrammed Ferris Wheel at Canberra’s flower festival Floriade (Package worth $400).

Floriade is the perfect event to keep the kids entertained throughout the school holidays, with a free KidzKlub and an array of hands-on activities and workshops in the Kids Zone, what more could you want!?

Whilst the kids are playing, parents can spend the afternoon picnicking and admiring retro-inspired flowerbeds showcasing some of the 20th Century’s most iconic figures in music, film, literature and social media – following the Pop Culture theme.

Floriade wraps up on Sunday 14 October with the always popular Dogs’ Day Out, featuring a superhero dress up Pop Culture theme. All pups, big and small, are invited to soak up the sunshine and explore Floriade with special pup-friendly activities and entertainment throughout the day.

PLEASE NOTE: The Accommodation is for One Night Only and for the nights of either 10, 11, 12 or 13 October 2018. Please ensure that you would be available for one of these nights.

  • Because I’ve never been to a flower show–it sounds magical. Although I would probably be more excited than my little princesses. Hopefully my excitement would be contagious. Maybe enough to foster a life-long love and appreciation for our natural world.

  • Grab the family,camera and packs,
    Floriade- read up on the facts,
    family bonding, no mobile phones,
    discovering all the beautiful flowers, our minds will be blown!

  • I have never taken the kids but my husband and I used to go every weekend before we had kids and my daughter especially would love to see all of the flowers in bloom

  • Because school holidays seems so boring and I am looking for a change and what else could bd the best to visit floriade.

  • That gardens are not just for adults, not for just looking and not touching… they are alive, fun, able to be explored, touched, smelled and grown by anyone.

  • My 2year old son absolutely loves flowers!
    He would have so much fun at the flower festival. What an amazing family experience!

  • We love Spring, we love flowers, we love Canberra!
    The pop culture theme sounds fabulous and we love that there is a Kids Zone so we can have some adult time too!

  • We have never had the opportunity to visit the festive but plan to ever year, it always seems out of reach. Thank you Canberra for such an amazing display of beauty. My family love gardening and would cherish this forever. A family who plays together stays together

  • Me and my partner attend Floriade every year and it is the most amazing festival for our young family who love to maintain and expand our household garden.

  • Its on my wish list, but not ticked off as yet!!

  • Tulips, roses, glorious delight.
    Seeing Floriade would be a sight!
    I live in the outback, red dirt abounds.
    Nothing pretty grows out of my ground.
    To smell and see this wonderful flower array.
    Would certainly be a hit these school holidays!

  • I remember visiting floriade many years ago and the sight of all the colourful flowers was spectacular – I’d love for my kids to have this memory too

  • My family would take my Mom Betty, for her birthday. She watches the garden shows every year showcasing the Floriade. She is so sad that she can not go, I’d love to make her dreams come true. She’s our beautiful tulip who’s made us grow into the family we are.

  • Canberra has so much to see,
    And the outdoors fills us with glee!
    Inspiration for our own garden out back,
    When my green thumb decides to attack!
    Museums and the National Arboretum to explore,
    It’s entertainment galore.

  • We were there today – it’s just fabulous and a great family event. The winner should enjoy it!
