The ABC says the ACT tourism authorities are finally considering taking legal action against the pesky Hunter Valley people who have started up a floral event also called Floriade (not sure if this or this is their official website).

The Hunter Valley Gardens festival runs in August and features many thousands of bulbs and annuals making pretty pictures just like our premiere tourist event does.

The story of ACT Tourism’s outrage has been around for a while and I’m surprised it’s taken them this long to consider legal action.

Can we sue anyone for making the price of petrol so high?

And in other Floriade news, Australian Capital Tourism’s Ross McDiarmid told the ABC that we shouldn’t get too upset if visitor numbers aren’t as high as in previous years because of petrol prices.

I can’t imagine Stanhope allowing the term “Royal” to be placed any where near his name.

When they got to the Hunter Valley they could burn it all down, after Jim Murphy has acquired all the good wine first!

Feel The Power of Canberra, Hunter Valley!

they stole it from the Netherlands anyway, which has been running Floriade for much longer than the ACT
