Brisbane’s Central Park

On Sunday, MrMM (my photography assistant) and I went into the city to Brisbane’s Roma Street Parklands so that I could wander around taking photographs.  I need heaps and heaps of images so that hopefully I can find six (6) brilliant ones amongst them to submit for my final photography assignment.

We went armed with a thermos of coffee, bottled water and morning tea.  Here are just some of my favourite shots edited so far.  I still have hundreds to go through!!  If you want to see more – you can at the Marguerite Louise Photography FB page.

I am ashamed to say that even though I worked in the city for many, many years – I had never been to Roma Street Parklands before.  I had been to nearby Roma Street Railway Station but not the parklands!  They are beautiful!

    • Thanks Tamara! Oh my goodness – I can’t believe your son fell into the pond! How old was he? Did it have a fence around it then coz it does now! 🙂


    • Thanks Kaz! BrizVegas has some stunning spots – these Roma Street Parklands, Southbank, Botanic Gardens in the city and at Mt Cootha … and more! 🙂


  1. Min these are gorgeous. I have not been to the parklands in a very long time. You have inspired me to go now that I can view it through artistic eyes. Xxx


    • Many thanks Deb! That was the first time I had EVER been to the parklands. Can you believe it! It is because I worked for many years in the city and the city became a ‘workplace’ for me. I never had time to wander parks etc. Lunch breaks were usually spent at my desk! I was such a committed fool back then. I know better now 😉 x


    • Thanks Rita! Yes I remember you telling me how beautiful the Roma Street Parklands were when we met up that day. I felt a bit embarrassed that I live in Brisbane but yet I had never been there. At least I can say I have now and I was very impressed 🙂 x
