Roma St Parklands



I must admit I was blown away by the Roma St Parklands. Right in the heart of Brisbane, the extensive gardens were developed on the site of the old central railway goods yard. It was opened to the Public in 2001 and incorporated Albert Park, a much older reserve on the steep slopes of Spring Hill.

  1. I can see why you were blown away. Looks like the kind of spot my camera would love. :-) Sorry about Mr. Linky. It has been updated and I re-entered your link for you.

  2. Great shots, Mark. We are so lucky in Australia to have such wonderful public gardens that are well looked after.

  10. I love walking through gardens like this. I love the Australian bush, too. But also beds and beds of flowering annuals, all brushed up and looking in their prime.
