It's that time of the year again where the weather starts to heat up Canberra and Floriade Springs to life!
Floriade is a feast for the eyes and if you are stopping by the Nations Capitla this September it is a must to see.
You can stroll through the beautiful gardens, have some lunch and enjoy a drink in the marquee or brave the height and go atop the ferris wheel to experience it all from a birds eye view. Can you spot the pictures the tulips create?
