Floriade has been reimagined with the annual spring celebration moving from its traditional home in Commonwealth Park to bloom across Canberra.

One million bulbs and annuals will create a tulip trail through the ACT’s suburbs and city. Featuring floral plantings by the Floriade: Reimagined horticulture team and more than 90 Canberra community groups, this year’s festival allows the community to enjoy spring blooms every day.

Experience a touch of Floriade: Reimagined at more than 130 locations with the tulip trail – there are lots of great locations in the Weston, Woden and Molonglo region.

Woden, Weston Creek and Molonglo residents spot the array of potted flowers around the Canberra Hospital, Woden.

Visitors to Marymead at 255 Goyder Street in Narrabundah can see a beautiful display of blooms. The team have also planted flowers at their Marymead Urban Land Community Harvest (MULCH) site at Stirling.

Marymead Communications and Fundraising Manager Jaclyn Callaghan said Floriade: Reimagined was an exciting initiative to be a part of, adding an extra element of colour to their site.

“I know there has been disappointment with events being cancelled due to COVID-19, so it’s great to see businesses and communities getting together for Floriade: Reimagined. I think the exciting thing about Floriade: Reimagined is about bringing people together,” Jaclyn said.

At Heysen Street in Weston, you will find Floriade: Reimagined bulbs and annuals nestled in the Woodland Garden area within Fetherston Gardens. These garden beds frame the open grass space and provide a beautiful addition to the existing plants, shrubs and colourful bulbs.

Spring is in the air at Molonglo with boxed flowers beautifying Cotter Road in Weston. Enjoy the colourful display from your car on your way to Mount Stromlo and Cotter Reserve.
