Endless green on green - absolutely beautiful.


I was taking a nice, scenic drive through the Camp Hill/Seven Hills area, enjoying their interesting roads with many twists and turns, flanked by many quaint Queenslanders, when suddenly, I chanced upon this well-hidden gem of a park on a residential street.

Not sure what this is for... does anyone know?


There wasn't a sign or anything for Perth Street Park (it belongs to the Camp Hills Bowls Club), but it covers an expansive area with many different facilities available. There is something for everyone here.

For the little ones, there is a playground with lots of cute play equipment, which conveniently is also under a sun canopy - no worries about sun exposure here.

Flowers that are bigger than Eddy!


For the caregivers of these little ones, there are plenty of (shady) seats for you to sit while supervising them.

For the older children, there is a skate ramp, and a half basketball court.

For the couples, there are lots of 'love seats' throughout the park, where you can enjoy some alone time in peace and quiet.

'Love seats' left, right, and centre. Plenty to go round!


For the families, there are plenty of shaded seating areas, with an electric barbecue available for use.

Plenty of gazebos in the park, making for a nice, relaxing place to escape the sun and heat.

For the fitness enthusiasts, there is a selection of gym equipment available, as well as a bike/walking track.

Free exercise equipment, yay!


If you're looking for an expansive park with a wide range of facilities, look no further. Perth Street Park, located in Camp Hill, is less than 15 minutes from Brisbane City, with plenty of free street parking. Perhaps best of all, it is relatively unknown, so rest assured knowing that the place won't be packed to the brim, even on the weekends!

What a great looking park, i grew up at Seven Hills, many moons ago, i wonder if the park was around then. Has a lot to offer for everyone. The concrete strip i believe would be a cricket pitch.

A very relaxing place for a family day, having a walk or a barbecue.
