This is taken in the Roma Street gardens in the heart of Brisbane. The area is beside the central railway station and used to be shunting yards and a real eyesore. It has been transformed into a mini botanical gardens with fern grottos, dry Aussie areas, palm areas, tree top areas, flower, cactus and beautiful water areas. The walkways offer vistas from every height and there are little spots to have a garden wedding in as well. One bridal party was being photographed with the complete backdrop of wide falling water, it was impressive. There are bbq and play areas. It is such a delightful place to wander through with birds and lizards of all colours and varieties.

Did you notice how English white I am?  Yuk!  I am now working on getting a soft slow tan; just enough to look like a local. 🙂
