 Explore the Parkland

Roma Street Parkland is an oasis in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD offering spectacular surrounds for leisure, recreation and events.

The Parkland is set over 16 hectares of green space and is the largest urban subtropical garden in the world.

Explore the Parkland’s changing landscapes set in five individually designed precincts.

Colin Campbell Place

Enjoy meandering through the winding path ways of this garden lovers paradise with an ever changing seasonal display of blooms. Colin Campbell Place displays a vivid array of colour all year and includes a collection of flowers, herbs, water features and art works.

The Lake Precinct

With its wide open lawns and lakeside walkways, the Lake Precinct is a wonderful place to take a relaxing walk and see the resident ducks. Open spaces and shady trees also offer some good picnic spots where you can sit back and relax or take a break while the kids run off some steam.

The Forest and Fern Gully

The Forest and Fern Gully offers the chance to explore a subtropical misty rainforest in the centre of Brisbane! You can follow along the path way at ground level and take in the lush ferns and gushing creeks or extend your walk to one of the walkways that will lead you gently to above the tree tops where you can look down through the forest canopy to the pathways and plants below.

Celebration Precinct

Situated in front of Mélange Café, the Celebration Precinct boasts a magnificent lawn which is used for major community events. Significant artwork, a living mural and a dramatic water wall make this precinct a must see. Then, cross over the little bridge between the water walls which leads through to Frangipani Court with its lovely trees, BBQ areas and the Jumping Salmon water feature.

Upper Parkland

The Upper Parkland is a wonderful recreational area, home to the colourful children’s playground, Amphitheatre and the contemporary Harry Oakman Pavilion. The Upper Parkland provides some of the best vantage points to take in the city views.

Wether you decide to explore the rainforest, take advantage of the children’s playground or just relax by the lake, the Parkland has something for everyone to enjoy!
