The annual event to see

Usually a great event for all ages and the family. An opportunity to distract the kids with a small side show and petting zoo. Music and displays add to the event.

Ive always wanted to go, so organised a trip to see the kids at floriade time of year. You wil not be dissappointed. I went to the early morning walk with the volunteers who take you through before it opens for the day. They were very knowledgeable and it supports the Heart Foundation. An excellent way to see Floriade!!!

Hardly any flowers, hardly any parking, astronomical prices or facilities. It's a money grabbing exercise from start to finish that left us feeling used. There are far better flower displays in the area.

Great to wander around and enjoy the beautiful flowers and exhibits on a lovely sunny spring day by the lake.

We went to Florida early int he season so the flowers hadn't completely developed but we could see and appreciate the event. The average rating I gave was the result of the food. We were told we could get food so planned to do so. The food offerings were limited and what we were provided with was pretty ordinary...we will... More
