Event:
Enjoy your favourite songs performed by Queensland's best
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.
