Level 1, near The Body Shop. Peter Roberts Honda - The car is back and it’s been transformed into a parade of colours. Check out its floral bonnet!

Level 1, near The Athletes Foot. Rotary Club - Expressed in flowers the Rotary float signifies the importance of each club’s community support and helping those in need.

Ground Level, near Chong Co. QCWA - This year’s float comes with a Japanese flair and is a celebration of 98 years of helping Queensland women and children.

Ground Level, near Shoe Warehouse. YellowBridge - Admire the treasure trove on this year’s float inspired by their Op Shop called ‘Collectables’. It’s joyful to look at.

A message from the Centre Manager:  

This Spring, we are excited to bring you the reimagined Grand Central Floral Parade and trust that you will be pleasantly surprised by the floral transformation of the centre. We are pleased to advise that the parade is no longer a one-day event; rather we are able to hold the static parade over two weeks to coincide with the school holidays. Given these uncertain times, the two-week parade allows us, and you our customers, the opportunity to view the parade while maintaining social distancing. We encourage you to come at a time that suits you, when there is opportunity to socially distance, so our community can remain safe while enjoying the celebrations.

The safety and wellbeing of our community, retailers and staff is our number one priority; so we encourage all customers to socially distance, make use of the sanitiser stations throughout the Centre, and to stay at home if you’re feeling unwell.

 

Have you met the Mini Beasts yet? These oversize illuminated sculptures are in centre until Sunday 27 September. Get up close to all four located in the Dining Quarter. Once you have meet them learn all about what makes a mini beast and other interesting insect facts at the Bugs Ed workshops during the school holidays. If bugs aren't your thing there is also floral inspired craft workshops for all to enjoy. 

To celebrate the beginning of Spring our restaurants are offering great $20 and $10 dining deals throughout September. Why not take a well earned break after enjoying all the flower festivities. See all the great offers.
