From compost to flowering beauty
Brisbane Open House is a free public event, which gives locals and visitors the chance to discover some of Brisbane's best architecture and gain access to behind-the-scenes buildings across the city. As part of this fantastic event, Roma Street Parkland will be offering a free walking tour called 'From compost to flowering beauty'.

This special walk, which is available only on Saturday 7 October from 10am to 12 noon, will give visitors the chance to discover the Parkland's process of creating its own compost and green waste. Collected across the city, the tour will demonstrate how it supports the amazing floral displays including a visit to the Parkland's 'back of house' area to witness the process first hand.
