It's never too early to start thinking about the holidays and what will make the perfect gift for the special people in your life. Centennial Parklands isn't just a place to enjoy nature but it also has a range of family friendly experiences, honey harvested from the hives, a Christmas craft workshop for kids and so much more on offer. See our top five picks below.
The sweetest gift of all
Centennial Park is home to eight European beehives. Each batch of honey we produce is unique, 100% raw and unheated. The busy bees in our hives boost pollination within the Park and the serendipitous outcome of their hard work is the delicious Centennial Park Honey. Available for $14.50 per jar.

The gift of playing a new sport
The Sydney Golf Academy at Moore Park Golf is one of Australia’s most popular places to learn and develop your golf game in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. They have PGA accredited coaches available from 7 am – 9 pm, seven days a week so you can find a spot to fit into busy schedules. New Year, new game! More information here.
Gift a unique equestrian experience
A Park Ride around the dedicated horse track in Centennial Park is an enjoyable and relaxing way to spend time in this urban sanctuary. All equipment is provided so you will be fitted with boots and helmets. Next, you will be introduced to one of the well-trained horses, matched to your riding experience – even if you’ve never sat on a horse in your life! Online booking and gift vouchers available here.
Creative presents from the heart
This December Santa’s Workshop comes to Centennial Park. Little elves will be introduced to a range of art mediums and natural materials to create gifts parents and grandparent will love. Plus, it's fully supervised so caregivers can get those last minute jobs done - or sneak off for a coffee at the Parklands! More information here.
