Thanks, Jonbibelots, for starting this thread and welcome to the forum.
My two tips for Floriade are:
(1) Don't forget that the speed limit on Commonwealth Avenue Bridge northbound (towards the city centre) has dropped to 60 km/h for the duration of Floriade; and
(2) The carpark at the end of Allara Street in the city centre (near the pedestrian bridge past the swimming pool) can be a very good drop-off point for Floriade subject to your rider giving the okay for this.
Re (2), you can reach this area either from the city or by turning left from Parkes Way eastbound (towards the airport).
