Win A Wish - Floriade

Hero image

It was a picture perfect day in Canberra when residents, carers and volunteers made the journey from Maranatha Lodge Residential Aged Care in Batehaven to enjoy Floriade in Canberra. The day out was a group Win A Wish prize to experience Floriade in all its beauty.

Floriade is Australia's biggest celebration of Spring with a diverse program of music, cultural celebrations, food and wine, horticultural workshops, market traders, artistic displays, entertainment and recreational activities. With over one million blooms on display Floriade was the perfect place to experience the beauty of spring.

Following their tour of the colourful blooms on display, with the air redolent with sweet pollen, the group made its way to the Pialligo Urban Café, where they were treated to a delicious lunch of charcuterie, gourmet sandwiches, fruit platters and delicate tarts and pastries.

The highlight for many was that family members – daughters, sons, grandchildren, brothers and sisters - joined the group and they enjoyed some quality time together.

It was a special day for all.
