Be inspired at Floriade 2012

Floriade 2012 kicks off on September 15 and will run over 30 days with more than one million blooming flowers on display and an exciting program of entertainment, activities, workshops and demonstrations. This year’s program features four distinctive weeks all centred on the theme of Style and Design.

Week One – Spring Palettes
Welcome in spring with colour and inspiration through a kaleidoscope of activities.

Week Two – Fashion & Design 
Spring fashion and stylish design will steal the spotlight with runway shows, style workshops and innovative displays.

Week Three – His & Hers DIY 
Be inspired by the infinite possibilities for him and her to transform the home into an indoor and outdoor oasis.

Week Four – Home Grown Living 
Floriade’s final week is an ode to all things natural, from tips for sustainable living to celebrating home grown produce.

Lisa Ridgley from the events promotion company says,“The Gourmet Garden will be a huge drawcard. Here, visitors will experiment with the freshest local spring produce —DIY workshops, cooking demonstrations and more - straight from the garden to the pan. “

Be spring inspired at Floriade 2012 from Saturday 15 September to Sunday 14 October in Commonwealth Park, right in the heart of Canberra. Entry to Floriade is free. For more information call 13 22 81 or visit
