Illuminated Wonderland - Floriade NightFest

For five nights only, from 22nd to 26th September, 2010, Commonwealth Park is transformed into an illuminated wonderland of beautiful blooms and non-stop entertainment. Floriade NightFest will enchant you with everything from movies, comedy, acrobatics, cocktails, bustling markets, food, wine and plenty more to keep you entertained the whole night long.

Take a ride on the 35-metre Ferris wheel and be captivated by the stunning evening view of Commonwealth Park and nearby inner-city precincts. Pack a picnic and head for the giant inflated screen where you can watch films under the stars. Visit the Carnival Stage & Bar where performers such as Patrick McCullagh, Dave Thornton, Mr Quirk, Jacques the Cheeky French Waiter and the List Operators will have you in stitches.

Watch renowned floral designers, Michael Woods from the House of Holland Florist and Bernie Gadd from Champagne and Roses Florist, create beautiful arrangements in the ActewAGL Look 'n' Learn Marquee.

There’s plenty for the kids as well, including the National Zoo & Aquarium’s Riveting Reptiles Exhibition and side-splitting comedy and amazing acrobatics by The Gigalees Crazy Circus Show at the Floriade Kid’s Corner.
