Self-guided Walks


Staying fit and healthy is just a walk in the Park!

  1. Walking makes you feel good, gives you more energy and can be enjoyed on your own or with friends. The Grand Drive circuit is 3.6 kilometres, relatively flat and good to keep your fitness level up.
  2. Of course, for the more active, a light jog is a great way to lose weight and enjoy the surrounds.

Centennial Park also forms part of the Harbour Bridge to Clovelly Walking route – a scenic way to see the eastern suburbs and take in the sites at a leisurely pace. Please visit the Parklands Office for a copy of this brochure or download it here.
