Discover classrooms in a bush setting in the heart of Sydney!

Centennial Parklands offers outdoor learning programs for people and groups of all ages, which focus on environmental education, sustainability, fieldwork, bushcraft and developing a life-long connection to nature.

To celebrate the UN Year of Plant Health we are running our inaugural Name a Plant competition, can you imagine being called the wrong name for 100 years? Every primary and secondary class that attends one of our programs in 2020 can enter their suggestion to help name our mystery plant. Find out more

Connecting curriculum to nature

Our learning programs encourage problem solving, critical and creative thinking, team work and physical challenge in a ‘bush classroom’ setting. Children will explore the environment through hands-on activities and each excursion can be tailored to meet individual group’s needs.

Our programs cover key learning areas such as science, geography, education for sustainability, creative arts and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures.

Programs can be booked as a one off excursion or can be a multi-visit program for students from early years foundation through to primary and secondary, university and other tertiary institutions, vacation care groups, youth organisations and adult education groups.

Connect your students with the Australian bush by enrolling them into one of our education and excursion programs and connect curriculum with nature.
