Origins Floriade flower festival

The Floriade Spring Festival was first held in 1988 to commemorate Australia's Duality Congress and Canberra's 75th Birthday and has been a regular spring activity since then. Held at Commonwealth Park on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin, the month-long Floriade festival attracts more than 400,000 local, federal and international visitors each year from mid-September to mid-October.  

This event comes from a gardener named Peter Sutton, who sought to recreate the gardens according to the memories of his world tours. Supported by landscape designer Chris De Bruine, they co-founded Australia's national celebration in a colorful, colorful way.
