  • I love it! The colourful plants, waterfalls, huge lizards roaming around, it’s amazing. You have to go there. I keep trying to post photos but the app keeps crashing.  more »
  • The Roma Street Parklands are somewhat unspectacular in the winter, a nice green area in the middle of Brisbane but yet. It's enough for a stroll or as a training track for uphill runs because the park is located on a slope.

  • Fantastic space for people to visit, especially as it's so close to the heart of Brisbane. Has amazing bird life, including the pair of Channel Billed Cuckoos being raised by a pair of crows. Sculptures, picnic spots, well maintained lawns and gardens. Lots of places and things to see, to the point where you could spend all day there and still not see it all.
  • One of the most beautiful parks in Brisbane. You are going to find many birds, one waterfall, a lake and a large space to relax with your family. The train station is close to the park and a fast walk you get there. It has facilities as bathrooms, cafe etc. Easily you spend many hours over there.
  • One of my favorite places to go in City of Brisbane. Just love the gardens and always something new to see. Picnics areas and BBQs available. You can get meals and coffee nearby. Don't forget coins for parking car, but it's easy walking from town.
  • Love the new playground, watch the slides they can be hot as the shade sails haven't been installed yet. Fun for kids and adults alike, great garden sections full of beautiful flora and fauna. The little explorer train is a toddlers dream! The train was built in Canada .
  • The gardens are always beautiful, it was a nice hour spent just strolling around the gardens. Plus they now have two playgrounds for the kids. One for the younger kids, and one for the slightly older kids.
