Pub Rock: National Portait Gallery

Unfortunately the Floriade we all know and love is unable to go ahead this year, but that doesn’t mean Canberra’s annual Spring celebration isn’t going ahead at all! Floriade has been reimagined, moving away from it’s normal home in Commonwealth Park to all across Canberra. Organisers have been busy planting over a million bulbs throughout the suburbs of Canberra to bring Floriade directly into Canberra’s communities. The activities that would generally happen are being delivered in a mix of virtual and in-person, like workshops, fitness classes and a virtual marketplace of the stalls you all know and love at Floriade. Keep an eye out for hidden gnomes across the suburbs too!
