Centennial Parklands is known as the 'green lungs of Sydney' – a 360 hectare public space that provides critical ecological and environmental functions for the city and its inhabitants.
None of the animals in the Parklands are pets. If you care about the animals you see while you're here, visit this page to learn how to keep the wildlife wild and healthy.
The Parklands offer an abundance of places for animals to live and thrive, including the Lily Pond, Paperbark Grove and Lachlan Reserve in Centennial Park.

If your passion is trees, Centennial Park, Moore Park and Queens Park all have many fine examples of Australian figs, evergreen oaks, exotic pines, eucalypts and paperbarks.
Although the underlying landform and geology has an influence on the landscape, we owe the look of much of the Parklands to the Picturesque gardening style of the 1800's.
