Part 7 - Roma Street Parkland
Wickham Terrace and Wickham Park area.
Lighthouse? Actually this has never been a lighthouse (watermark mistake^^), but a Windmill constructed by convict labour in 1828.
It is now used as a weather observatory. And it is the oldest surviving building in the entire state of Queensland - prehistoric!
The view of Brisbane City from Wickham Park. Next to this place is a bigger park haha !
I arrived in Roma Street Parkland! Winter afternoon.
People playing soccer at Celebration Lawn, Roma Street Parkland.
The Hub and the Allee Bridge. There's even a canopy walkbridge on the other side.
The Frangipani Court. Relax. Peace of mind.
This is the canopy bridge I said earlier. Overlooking Brisbane City and Roma lakes.
Now I'm entering the forest... canopy walk, height not very high though.
Looks like a Japanese garden. Very very nice!
Now I know why Brisbane was voted the 6th most liveable city in the world in a survey in 2004 (ranked equally with Adelaide, Sydney, Copenhagen, Oslo and Zurich, of which Melbourne topped the list and London was 45th).
(clockwise) Harry Oakman Pavilion and Upper Parkland; The Spectacle Garden and miniature waterfall; The Flower Garden at Foxtail Avenue; and Roma Street Parkland entrance.
Coming up next: Part 8 - South Bank, most visited tourist attraction in Brisbane City.
