Hump Day Post – Floriade

Today for my Hump Day Post, it’s Floriade, from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory (ACT)

Floriade has been celebrated in Canberra for 26 years. It’s Australia’s biggest spring celebration and it lasts for 30 days during September and October. With one million flowers in bloom at Canberra’s Commonwealth Park, it welcomes more than 400,00 visitors each year.

I had the good fortune of visiting it last weekend and whilst I’d seen many parks with millions of flowers before, I’d never seen them from the top of a ferris wheel! It certainly gave it a different perspective. Admission is free, so it’s a great way to spend a weekend for young and old 🙂

About Retired2Travel

My passion has been for many, many years landscape photography so when the chance came up to retire early, in order to travel, I took it! It made sense then to marry the two (travel and photography) and create this blog. I hope you enjoy it :)
