We thoroughly enjoyed taking visitors from New South Wales into the city to the Roma Street Parkland. We had often driven past it, but we drove in and parked easily at the minimal cost of $1.00 an hour at the weekends - so we booked three hours. Street parking would be more expensive. Walking into the parkland, we found places to sit or stand to admire trees and the plants along the way, and passed fountain areas. We easily found seats near the Barbecue area, had a picnic lunch and enjoyed the view. There is water for drinking and toilets nearby - but the ibis birds are quite aggressive, and jumped up on a nearby unattended table where food was left unattended. They must not be fed!
We easily walked through the whole of the parkland, admiring the trees and flowers and the gardens - well set out and planted with spring flowers. Different areas are set out where you can just walk around, including an eye-glass pattern of flowers. There is also a small rain-forest section and a wonderful large waterfall over into the area where there is a large playground/parkland:plenty of room for children and people to play games or just laze around. We took our time taking photos (as did everyone else I think) and just enjoyed wandering through these well-kept gardens. There is a cafe located at the southern end also ... but we had taken food and drink. Suits all ages - with lots of different experiences to be had. Thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing time and will return.
