About Roma Street Parkland
The lush open-air amphitheatre with grass-covered seats makes for a dreamy setting, but bring a rug or pillow for extra comfort.

“To be or not to be hungry?” will not be the question, as woodfired pizzas, savoury/sweet waffles and drinks will be available for purchase, before and during the play. Come early for pre-performance food, live music and swordplay! 

GETTING THEE THERE: The parkland is a 10 minute walk from Brisbane’s CBD and is adjacent to Roma Street bus and train station. Metered parking is available at College Close Car Park and along Parkland Boulevard. For dropoffs, Wickham Terrace is the closest road to the amphitheatre.
