Centennial Park’s fascinating history comes to life with the new Centennial Park History Walk app. The app is a multimedia experience that will be a hit with those who love Australia’s most historically important public park.
You will enjoy a self-guided tour with audio commentary, and historic footage that will take you through the rich history of ‘The People’s Park’ – over 125 years of tales, intrigue and challenges.
You’ll also discover the park’s personalities and ‘statuesque’ residents, stand upon the site where our modern nation was born and discover more about the Park’s rich sporting legacy and elegant gardens. From swampland and rocky outcrop, the tales that helped shaped a nation await.
Available in iPhone and Android versions, you’ll be amazed how much you didn’t know about Australia’s most historically important public park.
