Activities Around Quest Canberra City Walk – With Accessible Accommodation
For a month each Spring, Commonwealth Park is home to Floriade, the largest floral display in the Southern Hemisphere. Floriade is a free event and has good accessible facilities in place. Accessible parking is available close to the entrance and there are accessible stand-alone unisex bathrooms. The paths are a mix of compact gravel, concrete and grass.
Even when Floriade isn’t happening, Commonwealth Park is lovely to meander through. You may just spot some gardeners who are there for months before the main event, weeding, watering and replanting plants disturbed by birds.

Australian War Memorial:
The War Memorial is located directly opposite Parliament House, and aims to help us remember the sacrifices of those who fought for freedom, lest we forget. With so much on offer, history buffs could fill 2 days here.
One such key exhibit is the Discovery Zone. The zone is an educational space for school groups and is open at peak visiting times for the public, especially catering for children. Some elements are not wheelchair accessible. Experiences in this Zone include sitting in an Iroquois helicopter, dressing up in military clothes, and leaning over makeshift trenches.
The War Memorial can be accessed via ramps and lifts, and there are disabled parking spaces both under and above ground. Some rooms have low-level lighting to protect exhibits, or there may be flash lighting. The Memorial is self-guided, although volunteers run regular free tours of various durations. The grounds are extensive often with statues commemorating specific battles, and there are often flat paths to view them.
We highly recommend timing your visit to coincide with the Last Post Ceremony that occurs just prior to the Memorial closing each day. Located in the Commemorative Courtyard, a story behind a name on the Roll of Honour is read out, personalising the moving experience.
