Overnight camping in Centennial Parklands


Starting from: $69 - $129

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.

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! 

September campers are in for a treat as we set up camp in the Ian Potter Wild Play Garden for a truly special camping experience. 

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!

Our package includes:

  • Tent assembly 101: remember the poles

  • Fully catered BBQ dinner and continental breakfast

  • Unique bat watching experience at sunset with our Education rangers

  • Guided spotlight tour of nocturnal wild life in the park

  • Running, jumping and playing in our amazing Outdoor classroom

  • Authentic catered campfire experience (and yes! We will have s’mores and stories)

  • Mindfulness activity for adults and kid’s nature play activities in the morning

Bring the kids along for a fun night under the stars. Added bonus: you’ll be the first in the park in the morning!
