Explore and run wild these autumn school holidays at Centennial Parklands

Posted: 21 March 2018

Want the kids to spend time in the great outdoors over the autumn school holidays? Bring them to Centennial Parklands for a variety of fun and physical activities that we’ve got planned, which will keep the little ones busy for the whole two weeks!

We have loads of events over the holidays to make your life just a little bit easier. This year’s autumn program is all about reconnecting children with the physical world around us. Immerse yourself in nature with talks like Bat Fest, and watch the Sydney's largest colony fly out during sunset.

Learn about native plants and how they were used by Aboriginal people of Australia with our Bush Food Hunt and Bush Life workshops. Kids will learn how to construct shelters, build fires and find the right plants to ensure they survive in the wild!

Help contribute to our fight to save the ocean, by joining the Two Hands Projects and educate kids about ocean pollution, recycling and reusing. This hands on session will teach you how to make your own reusable bag out of an old t-shirt and take you on an exploration around the park to hunt for hidden turtle-traps.

But if that wasn’t enough, we have our first ever interactive workshop with Fizzics Education. Kids will learn how to program our new Lego robots to do their bidding and the basics of engineering, in fun hands-on way.

Here is our top picks for autumn:
