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.

March- Raft Races

Learn how to build robust little rafts from natural materials and test to see if they float...

April - The Best Cubby Houses

Become a Master Cubby Builder using only materials you find in the bush...

May - Stargazing

Not only do you get to sleep under the stars - the Sydney City Skywatchers will set up their telsecopes for us and share their knowledge about the beautiful night sky ...

June - Winter Solstice

Come and celebrate this special time of the year with us in the park.

September - Tracks, Trails, and Treasures

Enjoy a spring night in Centennial Park and learn survival skills from our education rangers.

November - Who lives in the Park?
