Here is the fourth post of my Highlights. Today, Roma Street Parklands, Brisbane. Reclaimed from a railway goods yard (and using land which was, of course, prior to that, used for thousands of years by the local indigenous peoples for ceremonies and meetings), these exquisite parklands are a joy to wander through and to rest awhile, which I did for a few hours, accompanied by thieving ibises.
Here is just a taste of these lovely parklands. Everything is here: lakes, gorgeous display gardens, performance area, arena and auditorium, cafe, children’s play areas rainforest, waterfalls, a network of winding paths and boardwalks, fabulous city views, birds, animals and fish. For a writer this is a perfect place to explore, admire, reflect, and also to sit for hours with your Moleskine notebook and a cup of coffee to review your writing ideas and add many more.
