No better, or prettier time to visit Canberra than in the Spring Pretty when the city bursts with the colours of Floriade. The idea of Floriade was that of Christiaan Slotemaker de Bruine who was a landscape architect for the government, and wanted to do something magnificent to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Canberra in 1988. The Floriade display is the largest of its type in the Southern Hemisphere with over 150,000 annuals including 65,000 tulips and 20,000 daffodils. No trip to Canberra would be complete without a visit to both, the old, and the new Parliament Houses, the National Museum and the Australian War Memorial for the Last Post Ceremony. To cap off this amazing tour we also partake in a truly unique experience and experience a guided tour of the gardens of Government House.


Beyond the gates of Floriade, Canberra is brimming with must-see-and-do experiences this spring. With a stellar food and wine scene, a multitude of museums and galleries and endless natural attractions just waiting to be explored, discover why the capital was named third in Lonely Planet’s top 10 cities in the world to visit in 2018
