Paperbark Grove picnic site

Centennial Park's Paperbark Grove picnic site is set amongst a splendid cluster of paperbark trees planted in 1899. Depending on what time of year you visit the site you may have company, the trees are much-loved by lorikeets and honeyeaters.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions to outdoor gatherings, we will be unable to offer picnic bookings at Centennial Parklands.

Paperbark Grove picnic area is a short walk from Centennial Park's Paddington Gates and Centennial Homestead's food outlets.
