Miracle on Roma Street – the Enchanted Garden returns with a stunning light display
Much like moths to the flame, it’s really hard for us humans to resist the lure of a good Christmas lighting display. Whether it’s a family tradition or a happy coincidence, riding through your suburb to check out the festive adornments on your neighbours’ houses is one of those wholesome activities creates a sense of childlike joy and instant nostalgia. Well, we’ve found a little something that takes that feeling to the highest level – returning to the Roma Street Parkland from December 8–17, the Enchanted Garden sees the grounds light up in a twinkling technicolour display that will captivate your senses.
After its stunning debut last year, the Enchanted Garden won a place in Brisbane’s collective heart and will return to the Roma Street Parkland for a limited time leading up to Christmas. Taking over the Spectacle Garden for the duration of the event, this breathtaking display and immersive experience is a free-entry walkthrough that is sure to surprise and delight. Twinkling lights, charming decorations and a smooth, mellow score all set the scene for a summer night of festive wandering.
Because the Enchanted Garden was so dang popular last year, this year there are a few rules in place to make sure everyone has a chance to experience the magic. It’s still totally free to enter but to ensure crowd safety there will be a staggered entry format. The Enchanted Garden is open from 6:30–9:30 pm every night during the December 8–17 period, with weekends obviously being a pretty busy time. While you’re in the area be sure to check out the rest of Roma Street Parkland – it’s a real stunner! The 16 hectares of the site have themed gardens, secret paths, loads of local artwork and more to feast your eyes upon.
