Centennial ParklandsProvided by Craig Easdown

Centennial Parklands consists of three adjoining major urban parks - Centennial Park, Moore Park and Queens Park.

Covering 360 hectares, the Parklands is the birthplace of modern Australia, hosting the Inauguration of Australian Federation ceremony in 1901. It is Australia's largest community sports destination,  providing indoor and outdoor spaces for events that attract over 600,000 patrons a year.

The Parklands has been awarded three consecutive Green Flag Awards, and was recently recognised with a national Facilities Management Award for its technological innovations in infrastructure and open space management.

With 15,000 trees (including the world's largest collection of Port Jackson Figs) and over 140 species of birds spotted over the years, Centennial Parklands is also leading the way with environmental management, nature play and innovative education programs.
