From Swamp to Scrub

From Swamp to Scrub was Greater Sydney Parklands’ first virtual community event, bringing our parks to Australians to celebrate National Science Week on 14 - 22 August 2021.

The event brought 5 to 10-year-old budding scientists on an interactive science-packed journey through the wetlands of Sydney’s famous Centennial Park to the woodlands and scrub of Sydney’s biggest backyard, Western Sydney Parklands. Along the way, children, their adult friends and teachers discovered the plants and animals that call Australia’s biggest city home with over 25 science activities to complete on their quest!
