While probably not among the top-ten things to see in Sydney suggested by guidebook, Centennial park is an awesome place for a bit of peace & quiet after exploring the buzzing downtown area. It is a huge park where you can jog, cycle, ride a horse or just sit and read a book or have a picnic - the local cafe offers some nice fresh snacks and great coffee to take away. You can watch parrots, pelicans and many other birds, especially in the lake area.

Great place for a Sunday picnic. Plenty of trees and the houses in the area are beautiful. Once an opulent area and one of Sydney's only place to get away from it all while still in the hub of a city.

Loved how well organised this concert at Centennial Park was. Could have had a few more entry lines for the 15+ yrs as organisers should have had figures of who purchased tickets but lines still moved quickly. Didn't check 1D's on all entries?? but fantastic security and transport on end of concert from a parents point of view. Would allow teens to attend more concerts at this venue.

We went to see Dirty dancing at the outside cinema in Centennial Park, what a brilliant experience that was, we purchased the gold tickets which gives you a huge beanbag to lie on right at the front, brilliant view, waiter service for food and drink, huge fruit bats flying overhead just as it started to get dark. Amazing, audience participation was pretty cool too. Loved it.

The park is 125 years old (I know this because the planted flowers told me so!) and is a greatly used, much loved local park. The circuit walk is about 4 kilometers and takes between 50 mins to an hour of solid walking (running you can knock it over much faster) It's used a lot by the locals, walking briskly under hundred year old trees, with the occasional horse riding by on the horse track. It's a great exercise and a much used track..

If you are a tourist, it's actually best to come during the week, because it really is busy on the weekends. It's terrific for kids of all ages, there are parks, run around space and of course, the ducks. The black swans and ducks are so tame they will take bread from your hand, and they expect food, so don't come without!

The kiosk is over priced but good quality. There is a more high end restaurant there too, less kid friendly but lovely for lunch, There is loads of parking inside the park but you can also catch buses to the main entrances.
