Centennial Parklands is a popular choice for many outdoor events and every year Centennial Parklands receives many event proposals.

To ensure a smooth application process the following information has been provided for prospective event organisers.

Centennial Parklands Events Policy

The Centennial Parklands Events Policy provides clear direction and a management framework for the approval, planning and delivery of events staged within Centennial Parklands.

Application forms and guidelines

All applicants are encouraged to review the information available here:

And then complete the Special Event Proposal Form (interactive PDF).

If you would like to discuss your event proposal with us please contact us on (02) 9339 6699 and ask to speak with a member of the Venue Services Team or email

Once your application has been submitted an assessment will need to be undertaken to ensure availability and suitability of the event at the Parklands. It is recommended that you submit your event proposal as early as possible to allow enough time for approval to be sought.

Fees and charges

Centennial Parklands does not have a standard table of fees for event and venue hire due to the variable nature and extent of event applications that it receives. Event fees are based on the information provided within the Special Event Proposal Form including criteria such as:

  • the nature of the event
  • the infrastructure required
  • the duration of the event
  • the number of people anticipated to attend

We recommend you visit the Parklands prior to completing your application to identify appropriate venue spaces. Download a Parklands Map or our iPhone app for a map to orientate you during a visit.
