If you've ever been to the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens you know what a lovely tranquil place it is, filled with small garden rooms such as the Japanese Garden, Fern Room, and Wedding Lawns, as well as large open spaces near the lake and bandstand. No wonder it has been chosen as the venue to hold Opera In The Park on Sunday 22 March.
This is a community event led by the six West Brisbane Rotary Clubs and Drug ARM Australasia to support Drug Arm's Outreach Programs, Rotary community projects such as Global Polio Eradication as well as other local charities.
