Tour the garden of lights this Christmas
The whimsical wonder of the light infused Enchanted Garden returns to the Roma Street Parkland from 25 November to 21 December 2022 for a festive floral wonderland.

The Enchanted Garden is a sensational trail of shimmering lights carefully and artistically installed through the flowers and trees of one of Brisbane's premier public gardens - the Roma Street Parkland. The night time garden walkabout has become one of Brisbane's standout events in the lead up to Christmas.

Watch the kids faces be mesmerised by the sensory extravaganza of awe-inspiring sights, sweet smells and sounds of the garden for this magical, not to be missed, family-friendly experience.

This year, the design honours and has been influenced by the Eastern Water Dragon, an ancient, prehistoric appearing creature who lives happily in the parkland and can regularly be seen by visitors scampering to the water to sunbathe in the open. Without giving too much away, these reptilian wanderers will appear as giant holograms as the story of the gardens unfolds through these guardians of the gardens.

The four themes of the display are built around the water guardian, the rock guardian, the tree guardian and, the flower guardian.

The Enchanted Garden is part of Brisbane's Christmas program.

The night time garden operates through sessions to help manage the crowds and make sure everyone enjoys the experience at its best. Session times start from 6:30 pm and follow as:

  • 6:30pm - 7:15pm

  • 7:15pm - 8:00pm

  • 8:00pm - 8:45pm

  • 8:45pm - 9:30pm

    There will also be food trucks serving up a delicious, mouth-watering selection of meals, snacks and treats 4pm to 9.30pm daily at the Roma Street Parkland Celebration Lawn which are available to all visitors to the park.

    Some of Brisbane's favourite mobile foodies will be there (on a rotational basis) including:

  • Oh Waffles

  • Gelato a Go-Go

  • Yummi Fruit Ice-Creamery


  • Dinky D's Donuts

  • Sate House Fusion


  • Fritz's Wieners

  • BBQ Roadshow

  • Low'n'Slow

  • CharKOR BBQ

  • Flavours of Eataly

  • Bill's Burgers

    The Garden Room Cafe will also be open for dining and takeaway options.

    Don't miss out on the opportunity to experience a memorable and unique night-time Christmas event. Tickets to the Enchanted Garden will be available from 7 November 2022 and are $7 per person. Roma Street Parkland is located in the very centre of the Brisbane Central Business District just a short walk from Brisbane City Hall at 1 Parkland Boulevard.

    Getting to the Roma Street Parkland is all the more uncomplicated with so many transport options including car, bus, bike, train, scooter, and ferry. While you are there, you might like to check out some of the other features of the vast parkland some consider Brisbane's very own Central Park.
