The Enchanted Garden 2019
See one of Brisbane's most popular spaces in a completely new light.
November 11, 2019
Fancy seeing one of Brisbane's most popular spaces in a completely new light? Or, to be more accurate, with different lights flickering over the top of its lush greenery? As every home renovation-focused TV show has told us time and time again, a splash of colour can make a world of difference — and, at Roma Street Parklands' Enchanted Garden, it can turn an already picturesque space into a bright, festive wonderland.
While this is a family-friendly affair running from Friday, November 29 to Friday, December 13 as part of the city's Christmas fun, don't go expecting the kind of setup that you've been ignoring on every street corner in Brissie's suburbs. Lights will twinkle and decorations will sparkle; however, this isn't a tacky DIY display. Nope, not at all.
That said, a word of warning: people love glittering lights, so prepare for crowds. The brightness will dazzle from 6–9.30pm (with last entry at 9.15pm) and, if you're organised enough, you can always pack a picnic, arrive early and enjoy dinner beforehand. Plus, you can BYO drinks to one of the few public places that allows them in our fair town — although Roma Street Parklands' licensed areas are only licensed until 8pm.
Food trucks will also be onsite if you don't get around to taking care of your own nosh.
