Floriade is back – booking not essential

Cockington Green - September 11, 2023

Canberra’s annual Spring festival, Floriade, commences on Saturday, 16th September 2023 and continues until Sunday, 15th October 2023.

This is usually a very busy period in Canberra and at Cockington Green Gardens. In the past couple of years, the presence of COVID required bookings to made to visit Cockington Green Gardens during Floriade, however we will not require bookings this Floriade, although pre-booking can save time at the door.

The gardens are now blooming very nicely for this year’s Floriade. The outdoor team have been working hard to have the floral display at its peak throughout September and October including the interspersing of tulips within existing garden beds.

Work is also underway in mounting a revamped historical photographic display along the Heritage Rose Walk area. Some of the photographs go back 50 years, around 7 years prior to the attraction’s opening. This exhibition will be ready in time for this year’s Floriade.
