If you like the idea of being surrounded by wildlife over tasting fine wine, we highly recommend our Best Of Wildlife Tour. You can explore the vast existence of natural landscapes and wildlife in their natural habitat. Whatever your interests may be, adventure and wild animal sightings await you at the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, where you can get a chance to see kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, platypuses, and colourful parrots, among many other bird species.

You’ll also be visiting the Deep Space Tracking Station, a location that has participated and played a significant role in space travel history, specifically in the Apollo missions and the first moon landing.

The Floriade Festival: A Colourful And Breathtaking Festival Of Flowers

Canberra Floriade Tour 5

The Floriade Festival is an annual celebration of spring and Canberra’s vibrant floral landscape. The festival features a kaleidoscope of colour and life as visitors explore the lush gardens filled with thousands of brilliantly coloured blooms, ringing in thousands of visitors each year to enjoy the vibrant and awe-inspiring displays of colour from tulips and other flowers.

September to October marks the season of the Canberra Floriade Festival, one of Australia’s most awaited flower shows that has been around since 1988. Around 300,000 bulbs are annually distributed to community groups, schools and organisations to plant out in their homes and suburbs, bringing gorgeous bursts of colour to the whole city for the entire duration of the festival. We’ve designed a special Canberra Floriade Tour to showcase not only the festival itself but also take guests to visit the National Botanic Gardens, as well as Tulip Top Gardens, a private estate that houses a fabulous display of colourful tulips. Truly a feast for the eyes!
