Christian Eckardt

Manager Education and Community Programs

A former teacher and event manager, Christian has been able to combine his two professional interests here in the Botanic Gardens and Centennial Parklands.

Managing the community and education team, he has been creating and running innovative programs like Camping 101 and big community events like Stars for your Valentine since 2017.

Combining his background in education and event management with the passion for the outdoors – he easily fit into Centennial Parklands’ education philosophy of Nature Play. Having grown up in Germany, he is well acquainted with the model of forest schools and outdoor education. He loves to see urban kids re-connecting to nature again at our Bush School programs.

Christian also leads the programs at the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan including the Bush School classes and community events.
