This parkland is spectacular. So many beautiful flowers in various arrangements. Lots of wildlife, especially the water dragons looking so healthy. Lovely water features and inviting green grass to sit on.

Beautiful and relaxing park in the middle of the city. It is free and just need to pay $2 for a small parking fee to enjoy the park scene.

Yes, free. Parking is limited and you have to pay. You can jump on the train and get off at Roma Street station then you have a short walk to the Parklands. Cafe is expensive and not worth it, so take your own....cheaper... More
