 Parliament Gardens Reserve

Parliament Gardens ReserveLarge Image 1


This small triangular park is a pleasant respite at the Spring Street end of town, with views of Parliament House, Eastern Hill and St Patrick's Cathedral.

One of the garden’s main features is a memorial in bronze to Pastor Sir Douglas and Lady Gladys, two of Australia’s most prominent Indigenous leaders and traditional owners.

Relax on the grass or take a wander past the bronze statues and palm trees, beside Parliament House and Spring and Albert Streets. Cool off on a hot day by walking inside the cascading water of the Coles Fountain.
