No matter what the season, birdwatchers (also known as twitchers) flock to Centennial Parklands to view the enormous range of bird species that may be found here.

The Parklands offers locals and visitors a unique opportunity to spot more than 120 species, all within minutes of Sydney's CBD.

The wide range of species seen in the Parklands' is the result of the varied range of landscapes and environments that are found in a relatively small area (eg. urban forest, wetlands, open plains, native and exotic plant species plantings).
