Canberra comes alive this spring with the 25th anniversary of Australia’s largest flower festival – Floriade. To help celebrate the iconic floral festival, which kicks off on 15 September and runs until 14 October, Crowne Plaza Canberra is offering guests a series of floral and foodie experiences to stimulate the senses.
Dazzling garden beds, horticultural delights, engaging demonstrations and fun activities, including the magical NightFest are all inspired by this year’s Floriade theme Style & Design.
During the month-long event, Crowne Plaza Canberra is offering a special Floriade package, including overnight accommodation in a superior room, buffet breakfast for two in Redsalt Restaurant, complimentary car parking, a two-for-one drink voucher in Binara One bar, and an exclusive welcome pack including a Pantone journal, sunscreen and bottled water, from $250 per night*.
Partnering with local gourmet produce suppliers, including Fancy That Confectionary, Gourmet Taste Bud and Mount Majura Winery, Crowne Plaza Canberra will be offering complimentary food and wine tastings in the hotel’s light filled atrium. In addition, the hotel’s food and beverage team have created two limited-edition, floral-themed cocktails which will be available to guests during Floriade.
Keeping to the Style &Design theme, local indoor plant designer Instyle will be transforming the hotel’s foyer and atrium with spectacular Floriade-inspired flower arrangements, enhanced with a refreshing botanical aroma and backed by a musical soundtrack inspired by buds and blooms.
Located just a five-minute walk from the festival site at Commonwealth Park, Crowne Plaza Canberra is the closest hotel to Floriade and to ensure guests make the most of their Floriade experience, the hotel’s concierge desk will also be offering their personalised service equipped with maps, brochures and guides to the festival.
The package is valid for stays between September 15 and October 14, 2012. For details or to book, call 138 388 or visit website
