Brisbane, we really have to give it to you. In this city just bursting at the seams with things to do, we've been given one more—and it's all your festive dreams come true. Behold, the Enchanted Garden is back for evening strolls through over 8000 square metres of breathtaking light mediums, ampient soundscapes, special effects and sculptures.
From 1 to 23 December as evening settles in, Roma Street Parklands' stunning gardens will come to life. The entire place will basically be looking it's festive best, with glowing gardens, delicately-lit weeping figs and a shimmering rainforest. This year's display will even involve holograms, LED fields and hundreds of 3D-printed birds to create a storyline in which nature is fighting back against dark forces—so it's not just about the pretty lights.
One of our favourite Brisbane Christmas traditions, the Enchanted Garden is perfect for a cute friend date, loved up stroll or even just a solo photo walk for all of the 'grams. Of course, the event is once again keeping crowds to a minimum, and this year you'll need to purchase tickets for a specific entry time, at $7 a pop (or free for children under two, who don't need a ticket). Take note, there won't be any tickets at the gate, so make sure you snap yours up here.
Once you've gazed at all the lights, there will be a number food trucks ready and waiting to feed you on the Celebration Lawn, including Bill's Burgers, Char Kor BBQ, Rolling Stone Pizza and Ruby the Little Red Ice Cream Van. Or you could just bring a picnic—there's plenty of space on the grass.
Either way, it's bound to be a magical night out—just be sure to check the Visit Brisbane website for all the details and nab those tickets before you start making plans to visit.
