Burst into Floriade with Accor’s spring getaway package

With the nation’s capital bursting into spring with colour and bloom, Floriade 2013 is on track to wow guests as it celebrates its 26th anniversary and Accor is proud to be the official accommodation partner of the event.

To celebrate the sponsorship, Accor’s hotels in Canberra will be showing their support with an
accommodation package green thumbs are bound to love.

Accor’s 5 hotels in the nation’s capital, Novotel Canberra, Mercure Canberra, Ibis Styles Canberra, Ibis Styles Eaglehawk and Ibis Budget, are all offering a Spring Cultural Getaway package which will run throughout the duration of Floriade, from 14 September to 13 October 2013.

The Spring Cultural Getaway package, which is available at all 5 hotels, includes;
  • Two nights’ accommodation in a standard room
  • Full buffet breakfast for two people
  • A $50 Bunnings voucher (for kick-starting the garden, of course)
The first 200 bookings made online at on the Spring Cultural Getaway package will receive a free packet of Bloomin’ Bulbs.

Rates start from $115 per night at Ibis Budget and from $185 per night at Novotel Canberra. The Spring Cultural Package is available from 14 September to 13 October. 

Floriade’s marketing manager Adelina La Vita said partners like Accor were an integral part of the event’s success and she encouraged visitors to take advantage of the special offer.

“This year’s program offers something for everyone and provides the perfect excuse to book a getaway to Canberra,” she said.

Canberra has been celebrating Floriade since 1988 and the festival attracts over 400,000 attendees each year. Visitors to Floriade 2013 can expect to see over one million flowers on display throughout 

Commonwealth Park. This year’s garden beds, horticultural workshops, shows, children’s entertainment and the festival’s evening event, NightFest are all inspired by the theme ‘Beautiful Innovation’.

During the month-long event, visitors will pick up expert gardening tips, watch celebrity chefs cook up a storm, be inspired by a selection of Australia’s most inventive individuals and explore the country’s multicultural identity.
