Guided Tours Roma Street Parkland

Guided tours

Join our experienced and knowledgeable volunteers on a one-hour venture through Roma Street Parkland. The best part? It’s completely free and there is no need to book! These guided tours leave from the Roma Street Parkland Information Booth in The Hub at 11am and 1pm daily.

As you journey along the pathways together, your guide will share behind-the-scenes information about the parkland’s history and design. You’ll be led to the highlight attractions (with plenty of photo opportunities, of course!) as the group learns about the plants, wildlife, and hidden treasures in each precinct. 

During September there will be dedicated tours to showcase the Parkland on Monday’s, Bush Tucker on Wednesday’s and the Rainforest on Friday’s, these tours will take place at 11am. All other tours will be curated as you go, simply let your guide know your area of interest and let them take the lead.

Please note that Roma Street Parkland’s free guided tours are dependent on volunteer availability, so we recommend calling the team on 1300 137 468 before arriving to make sure there is a tour running.

Self-guided tours

If you’re an independent explorer or you simply want some flexibility around your visiting times, why not take yourself for a self-guided tour of Roma Street Parkland?

To enjoy a self-guided tour, head to the Roma Street Parkland Information Booth in The Hub and collect a special self-guided tour map. Whether you’re searching for the Parkland’s most iconic spots, you want to enjoy unique flowers and plants, or you want to discover all 26 pieces of unique art scattered around, there’s a route for you. If you’re not sure where to start, ask the friendly volunteers in the booth for suggestions – they have a wealth of knowledge and are happy to help.

Groups are provided with a reserved meeting point that is fitted with a kitchenette, picnic tables and seating to enjoy morning or afternoon tea before or after your tour, and tour bus parking can also be arranged for the duration of your visit.
