Spring is the perfect time to get up close and personal with Roma Street Parkland as lush lawns, new shoots and blooming bulbs turn the site into a gorgeous oasis.

Free Guided Tours are available every day of the week with expert volunteers sharing fascinating stories and revealing the inner-city haven’s hidden secrets. Choose from six different tours, each taking about 60-90 minutes at a gentle pace.

They’re free but wildly popular so you need to book your spot. Or, get the gang together and organise a personal Guided Tour for 10 or more people HERE.
