Camping 101

A nature filled night of camping and outdoor activities is easy and fun at Centennial Parklands. This authentic camping experience just 10 minutes away from the CBD, is a special way to bond with family. Centennial Parklands shows you all the delights of camping; you will enjoy a twilight tour, campfire stories, sleeping under the stars and much more!

Throughout the year, our program will have different themes:

July - Winter Warmer! (NEW!)

Ssshh, don't tell anyone that camping in winter is great!
Clear skies, star gazing, a warm camp fire, story telling and freshly made damper..
For those of you prepared to rug up and explore the park after dark, this will be a winter warmer!
Come and join us around the fire!

September - Trails and Tracks... who lives in the park? 

Learn to read the park like no one else and find out who lives in the nest, burrows, and boxes and who loves to eat what! 

October - Halloween Time ... 

Join us around the camp fire for some story of drop bears, bunyips and other creature that might be found in Australia! Don't forget to bring you dress up and you might be in for a treat! 

November - Bush Food Bash 

Our Aboriginal educators will join us in November and you will see which of the many plants in Centennial Park make a beautiful addition to our BBQ!
