Brisbane's Roma Street Parkland is the home of "the world's largest subtropical garden in a city centre".

This tranquil parkland area is located just a 5-10 minute walk from the heart of Brisbane city centre and is a great place to escape from the noisy street traffic and crowds. You can enter the parkland from Albert Street or Roma Street.

Attractions include:

"The Lookout" - a wooden platform where you can walk above and amongst the lush vegetation and admire the views over the lake;

"The Forest" - a small Australian rainforest featuring plantlife from such areas;

"Fern Gully" - a small area of fern trees with a path leading through them;

"Lake Precinct" - a lake surrounded by trees and flowers, seating areas and abundant bird life;

"Spectacle Garden" - a selection of very colourful tropical plants and flowers and water features.

There is plenty of natural wildlife within the gardens - you can see orb spiders weaving their webs between the trees, small lizards running around underfoot, colourful butterflies flitting around the flowers and lots of bird life around the lake and on the lawns.

Entrance to the parkland is absolutely free.

There are plenty of benches to sit on and grassy areas on which to enjoy a picnic. There is also a children's play area within the boundaries of the park.

Address: Albert Street and Roma Street
Directions: Located 5-10 minutes walk north west of the city centre.
