Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1998 Week 5 Hansard (26 August) . . Page.. 1422 ..
MR CORBELL (6.48): Very briefly in the adjournment debate this evening, I want to encourage members to consider another possible outing. I had the opportunity to be down at Commonwealth Park at the weekend and stroll around the beds for Floriade. Thanks to the unseasonably warm late winter we are having, many of the blooms are out. If members are concerned about the entry charge for Floriade, now is the time to go. The blooms are out. They look great. It is a great shame that a fence is going to be put around that area and people will have to pay to go in. The blooms and the work that has been done by CityScape gardeners are excellent. It is two weeks before Floriade opens. I reckon you are going to get your best viewing between now and then, so I urge members and anyone else listening to go along and to get it for free.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
