Picnics and BBQs

Cockatoos in Moore ParkMoore Park has a number of shady and pleasant spots for picnics.

There is one gas-operated barbecue located on the western side of Moore Park near South Dowling Street.

Picnic groups of 100 or more

Picnic or party groups of 100 or more people are required to register with the Parklands Office. Registering will ensure if any of your group cannot locate the designated area, the Park Rangers can direct them.

Registering your picnic does not give you exclusive use, however if there are any large events or maintenance work scheduled, notification will be given and an alternative area of the park may be chosen.

When registering, you will be asked for the following details:

  • Date and time of activity
  • Area to be used
  • Group numbers

Groups of over 100 people will incur a fee. See our list of fees and charges.

For all enquiries, contact the Parklands Office on (02) 9339 6699 or
