Hugging the northern side of the CBD, Roma Street Parkland and Spring Hill are iconic parts of Brisbane and its history. Roma Street Parkland, one of Brisbane’s premier parks, is considered to be one of the two best examples of contemporary display gardens in Australia. Well known by garden and plant enthusiasts for its exceptional horticultural standards, it is also an important community asset, popular visitor destination and event space for Brisbane. Spring Hill is home to the Old Windmill and Spring Hill Baths, and also plays host to a number of vibrant cafes and restaurants, making this area a unique inner-city paradise.

Roma Street Parkland was designed to create a public garden that would excite the imagination and be an attractive environment for both the local community and visitors to the city.
Planting throughout the parkland has been carefully considered and is sensitive to the climate. Microclimates representative of subtropical Queensland have been created in the parkland as distinct precincts, creating the feel of a subtropical wonderland representing Queensland’s varied plant life. Alongside the planting, the parkland hosts a number of community spaces for events and activities and is also a popular wedding venue.
