Roma Street Parkland
1 Parkland Boulevard Brisbane City Australia
This oasis in the heart of Brisbane is a must see destination. With spectacular subtropical plant displays, sweeping vistas and unique artwork, Roma Street Parkland is the perfect place to go exploring - and it's only a short walk from Brisbane's Queen Street Mall. The Parkland is not only a garden-lover's paradise, but also a regular host to many special events and festivals throughout the year. It has emerged as a popular gathering place for the people of Brisbane and a true highlight for visitors to the city, attracting nearly half a million people every year. Join one of the leisurely and informative guided walks leaving from The Hub twice daily or maybe hop onto the Parkland Explorer, the trackless train for an exciting journey through the parkland's misty fern groves, past rocky peninsulas or the Lakeside Meadow. The parkland provides well-maintained picnic spots and free electric barbecues so you can prepare your own food. There are two playgrounds designed for children of all ages, one at the Children’s Garden and the other along Weeping Fig Avenue. Roma Street Parkland is open seven days a week.
