Roma Street Parkland 'From Compost to Flowering Beauty' Tour


Location: Roma Street Parkland

About the Event:

Visitors enjoyed a guided walk through Roma Street Parkland, one of the best contemporary display gardens in Australia. The large open spaces, lush subtropical and comparative planting displays along with historic landscapes provides an unique opportunity for both locals and visitors to enjoy the world’s largest subtropical garden in a city centre. On this special tour led by our Curator, Roma Street Parkland opened up its back of house and operational areas to share with visitors the process of creating our own compost and soil from green waste collected at both Roma Street Parkland and South Bank Parklands and how we use it to create our amazing floral displays.
