In the heart of Brisbane City, you’ll find Roma Street Parklands — an oasis of designer gardens and sprawling lawns that wind around 16 hectares of stunning grassland filled with flora and fauna. Nearby is the historic City Botanic Gardens, the perfect spot to soak in the scenery on the varied walking and cycling paths, or if relaxing riverside amongst nature is more your thing, head to the extensive South Bank Parklands.

For picturesque walks, spectacular lookout views, and refreshing lakes and waterfalls, lace up your walking shoes and visit the Scenic Rim — Brisbane’s World Heritage-listed backyard, where nature undeniably steals the show.

If beaches and islands are more your natural paradise, escape to North Stradbroke Island/ Minjerribah, Moreton Island/Mulgumpin or Bribie Island for sun, sea, and sand adventure. Nearby, Moreton Bay Region or Redlands Coast regions also offer dreamy bayside escapes.
