Centennial Park information
Scratched out of the sand in 1888 in grand Victorian style, Sydney’s biggest park is a rambling 189-hectare expanse full of horse riders, joggers, cyclists and in-line skaters. During summer Moonlight Cinema attracts the crowds.
Among the wide formal avenues, ponds and statues is the domed Federation Pavilion – the spot where Australia was officially proclaimed a nation (on 1 January 1901) – surrounded by the various state flags. Centennial Parklands Dining , near the centre of the park, encompasses a cafe, wine bar and kiosk. At the southern edge of the park is Royal Randwick Racecourse , while on its eastern edge the park joins Queens Park and continues for another 26 hectares.
