Encompassing an impressive 16 hectares of the Brisbane CBD, Roma Street Parkland is the largest subtropical garden in any city centre in the world. Located just opposite the Park Hotel Brisbane (and visible from many of its guest rooms and common spaces), this sprawling oasis is arguably one of Brisbane’s best features.
Follow the park’s winding pathways and boardwalks to discover beautiful waterways, recreational areas, themed gardens, and art installations. As well as boasting a spectacular range of subtropical plants, the parklands also feature lakeside barbecue facilities, a children’s playground, free deck chairs, and an open-air amphitheatre, which hosts a number of plays and orchestral concerts throughout the year.
Roma Street Parkland is open to the public 24 hours per day, with a full events calendar bringing new surprises to the grounds every month. The park’s idyllic scenery also makes it a popular destination for photography enthusiasts, while its licensed and dog-friendly areas make it a fantastic destination for all kinds of occasions.
Roma Street Parkland welcomes visitors of all ages and abilities, offering baby-changing facilities, disabled parking and pathways, easy public transport access, and more.
