This vast 189-hectare parkland, just 10 minutes’ drive from the CBD, offers myriad ways to make the most of Sydney’s sunshine. Three playgrounds are decked out with modern kiddie-friendly equipment, while the Learners Cycleway is perfect for budding bike riders. Cross-country running, horse riding and rollerblading are other common activities. With its sweeping lawns, the Park is also a delightful place to dine; go for breakfast or lunch at the Centennial Parklands Café and Kiosk. If you prefer to bring your own, there are plenty of picnic tables and electric barbecues around the park.
Bordering the suburbs of Bondi Junction, Moore Park, Woollahra and Randwick, Centennial Park occupies a monumental space in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. A playground for children and adults alike, the park offers sporting fields, cycling, horse riding, and kids’ activities. It’s easily accessible via public transport from Bondi Junction and the CBD.
