The weather in
warming up and
the array of spring
time activities around
the City is beginning.
for residents and
visitors alike to
get out and about
and experience the
liveliness of Canberra during spring time.
The parkland adjoining Lake Burley Griffin will
again be brought to life with the annual Floriade
Festival from September 17 until October 16. The
theme for Floriade this year is A Feast for the
Senses and it is sure to set the scene for spectacular
entertainment, horticultural delights and a
wonderful selection of activities for the whole family.
A dedicated bus service, sponsored by Canberra
CBD Limited, will transport people between Floriade
and the City. The bus service will depart every 45
minutes, Thursday to Sunday, between Canberra
Centre and Floriade. Those visiting Floriade can
easily visit the Canberra CBD to enjoy Canberra
City's fine dining, great entertainment and excellent
The City has a thriving theatre scene, with
Canberra Theatre Centre, The Playhouse and The
Street Theatre providing a constantly evolving
program of performances encompassing plays,
concerts, comedy, dance, youth and children's
events. Be sure to also check out our city's amazing
exhibitions and unique community programs on
offer at Canberra Museum and Gallery.
The recent addition of an ice-skating rink in the
city has been very popular with visitors and locals
alike, and I look forward to looking at other ventures
for the family to enjoy in this space all year round.
Spring time also includes other events such as
the Canberra Nara Candle Festival, the Spring
Racing Carnival, the National Capital Rally and
the Canberra International Film Festival -- a wide
variety for all the family to enjoy.
I encourage all Canberrans and visitors to get out
and about, enjoy the warmer weather and take part
in the spring time festivities.
I wish you all a very enjoyable 'Spring in the City'.
