Romantic date ideas in Roma Street Parkland

Got your eyes set on a new romance or looking for ideas for your next date night with a loved one? Whatever occasion you’re celebrating with the special person in your life, Roma Street Parkland is a stunning location to set the scene.

The Lookout Roma Street Parkland

Sunset at The Lookout

Headed to the city for dinner or a movie? Park at College Close a little earlier, and enjoy the stunning sunset views to the west, from the Lookout. It’s a leisurely walk to the city through the Parkland. On the way home, pause at the Carriage Deck along Albert Street for pretty views of the city lights. 

Moonlight picnic at Lakeside or Forest Meadow

Impress your date with a gourmet picnic feast, complete with bubbles or beer at the picturesque Lakeside or Forest Meadow precinct. This area of the parkland is well lit, so you can enjoy a twilight or moonlight meal easily over the spring and summer months. Clever foodies will be able to assemble an impressive spread, or you could just dial up a gourmet delivery to a nearby meeting point and enjoy restaurant food without the crowds. 

Brunch date at The Sound Society

First dates are always awkward, so take the pressure off the need to make small talk by attending a live jazz performance at one of the monthly The Sound Society gigs. The relaxed vibe under the trees is the perfect way to spend a morning in someone’s company, plus you get to figure out if you have the same taste in music! Pack a picnic, or grab some snacks from the onsite café or food vendors and settle in for a chilled-out morning in the sunshine.

A quiet rainforest stroll

Escape the hubbub of the city with a walk through Roma Street Parklands’ rainforest and fern gully. Tranquil tropical palms are criss-crossed with trickling waterways and wooden boardwalks through the tree line, so you can experience the foliage from all angles. A great place for get-to-know you chats and a cool outdoor option during the heat of summer.

Performances at The Amphitheatre

Roma Street Parkland’s Amphitheatre is the site of live performances and musical gigs throughout the year. Home to the Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble’s annual repertoire, there’s plenty of choice to suit all tastes. Most shows are very affordable and there are often food trucks set up in the carpark so you can dine alfresco while you’re being entertained. Be sure to check the details of each individual event to pre-book your ticket, and what kind of eating options you’ll have.
