  • 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.

  • Amazing space, the gardens are juat amazing. The new flower layout is just beautiful like something out of Alice in wonderland. Walking through fern Gully was so calming and refreshing. The air is so clean and crisp. Loved all the wild life around as well, super chilled and very used to humans.
  • One of my favourite places in Brisbane. Can always see some wildlife around, there are some beautiful gardens with a mix of native and introduced plants and so many beautiful areas for kids to play or for people to relax in the shade.
  • Beautiful park in the middle of the city. It's one of the most beautiful and big parks in Brisbane I've been to. If you like photography this is the ideal place, its gardens are very well maintained, there are public toilets and barbecue areas. There are many parking places. The playground is big. Ideal for family and business plans.
  • One of the best parts of the city centre, right near the CBD, great spot for a picnic to see nature with lots of native plants and flowering gardens. Highlight the water recycling system making the place an excellent spot for the driest days of the year. It even has hives of European bees and native social stingless Australian bees. The on-site coffee shop offers fast food on tables and a wonderful variety of coffees.
  • Nice, well kept gardens with recreational areas around the gardens to relax or throw a ball around. The park staff are friendly and helpful, and help to keep the facilities clean and great to use. Good for kids as well, with a couple of playgrounds to use. I definitely recommend coming here with family or friends, or even by yourself.
