Many people make the annual pilgrimage to Canberra for Floriade, a stunning display of over one million flowers that celebrate the coming of spring. The festival takes places over 30 days in September and October each year with a different theme to mark the occasion. There is a vast display of gardens, spectacular designs and educational demonstrations as well as live entertainment and markets once the sun sets. If travelling by car be sure to arrive early at Commonwealth Park to gain a parking spot, or catch a shuttle bus in just to be safe.

For those with a curiosity for the political then a visit to Parliament House is a must. Here you can grab a tour of the building where most of the nation’s most important decisions are made and learn a little about how democracy in Australia works. If you enjoy watching parliamentarians sling insults at each other then observing Question Time in either the Senate or House of Representatives might be an enjoyable experience for you as well.
