  • 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.
  • An amazing place! This is a MUST See! I guarantee you will enjoy your visit to Roma Street Parkland. The gardens are beautiful and there is so much history here. The kids will not want to leave the fantastic play ground and kids garden.
