Roma Street Parkland

Roma Street Parkland Review

The world's largest subtropical garden within a city is a gentle mix of forest paths and structured plantings surrounding a fish-stocked lake. Highlights include the Lilly Pilly Garden, with native evergreen rain-forest plants, interesting children's play areas, and the friendly resident birds and lizards. A range of public art pieces are also dotted throughout the park. Pack a picnic, take advantage of the free grills, or stop for lunch at on-site café Melange. Free hour-long guided garden tours begin daily at 10 and 2, or on weekends hop on the Parkland Explorer, a trackless train that gives guests a full tour of the gardens for a gold coin donation. There are also specialist art, heritage, curator's, or sensory tours (pre-book these) and brochures for self-guided walks available online or from Colin Campbell Place.
