Roma Street Parkland

Brisbane City, Brisbane Area

This oasis in the heart of Brisbane is a must see destination. With spectacular subtropical plant displays, sweeping vistas and unique artwork, Roma Street Parkland is the perfect place to go exploring - and it's only a short walk from Brisbane's Queen Street Mall.

The Parkland is not only a garden-lover's paradise, but also a regular host to many special events and festivals throughout the year. It has emerged as a popular gathering place for the people of Brisbane and a true highlight for visitors to the city, attracting nearly half a million people every year.

Join one of the leisurely and informative guided walks leaving from The Hub twice daily or maybe hop onto the Parkland Explorer, the trackless train for an exciting journey through the parkland's misty fern groves, past rocky peninsulas or the Lakeside Meadow.

The parkland provides well-maintained picnic spots and free electric barbecues so you can prepare your own food.

There are two playgrounds designed for children of all ages, one at the Children’s Garden and the other along Weeping Fig Avenue.

Roma Street Parkland is open seven days a week.

Roma

Roma, Maranoa Area
Only 350 kilometres north-west of Toowoomba, Roma is sometimes referred to as the 'gateway to the outback'. Home to the southern hemisphere's largest sale yards, visitors can get a feel for the outback by perching on a fence or taking a coveted possie on the viewing platform to watch the action at Roma Saleyards.

Muckadilla

Muckadilla, Maranoa Area
Travel some 40 kilometres west of Roma, along the Warrego Highway and discover the whistlestop town of Muckadilla, or 'Mucka' as the locals call it. Once home to the famous Muckadilla Baths, this town may lack the bustle of bigger towns, but not the hospitality.
