If it’s the summertime vibe that gets you excited about Christmas in Brisbane, and you really dig the idea of lounging in nature on a warm, balmy night, then Roma Street Parkland is where you’ll want to be this December.

The parkland will be reimagining the traditional winter wonderland for the first time ever, with a free program of outdoor events.

Oh, what fun it is to celebrate Christmas at Roma Street Parkland with a walk through the Enchanted Garden, free Christmas movies under the stars, live music and plenty of kids’ activities!
