Centennial Parklands are actually a few smaller green spaces that combine to form one big super park! So big, in fact, the precinct is a huge 360 hectares in size and bordered by 4 local areas: the City, Randwick, Woollahra and Waverley. The parklands are approximately 5 kilometres south-east of the City Centre.
Bus services to the parklands are frequent, including the 378, 380 and 355. Buses depart from Central and Bondi Junction.
Please note the City does not manage Centennial Parklands and you will need to contact the park directly.
The grand park is more than 189 hectares of open space including gardens, ponds, wide avenues as well as plenty of lush grass perfect for picnics.
A diverse range of sports fields are on offer in the park. Consider working on your pitching or catching in one of the baseball/softball diamonds, or practice your spin in the cricket grounds, and if you still have some energy left, hockey, soccer and touch football fields are available.
Head to the CP Equestrian Centre if you feel like a spot of horse riding. With 3 playgrounds in the park, kids will be occupied for hours! Many special events are held in Centennial Park during the year, including the Parklife music festival.
If you feel like channelling your inner Greg Norman, pack your golf buggy and head to Moore Park, with its 18 hole course that is open to the public. Tennis and netball courts are also within the grounds.
Those looking for a quieter slice of life will be pleased to hear there are 115 hectares of open space, and a considerable amount of this is set aside for people to sit, relax and soak up some sun. You'll also find a playground here.
Don’t miss this park set in a natural amphitheatre at the foot of sandstone cliffs with some very impressive views of the Sydney skyline. Friendly as well as organised team sports take place here, including cricket, rugby and soccer.
At 26 hectares, it is the smallest of the parks in the area, but still provides plenty of room if you’re looking for some quiet time and want to get away for a while. Queens Park includes a recently upgraded playground.
