• Clean Up Australia Day Environment and Nature

    Get your gloves dirty for a good cause this Clean Up Australia Day!

We are very lucky to have such beautiful Parklands to enjoy, right on the doorstep of the city. While there are many strategies and initiatives in place to keep Centennial Parklands looking spectacular, every little bit of help goes a long way!

You can help us by adopting the ‘leave no trace’ approach when you visit the Parklands. But you can also help us by getting your hands (gloves) dirty this Sunday 5 March 2017 for Clean Up Australia Day!

Now in its 27th year, the great annual environmental initiative has seen 31 million hours dedicated to tidying more than 166 locations across the country.

In that time, volunteers have removed more than 331 thousand ute-loads of rubbish – imagine one long line of Aussie utes stretched bumper-to-bumper from Sydney to Brisbane following Australia’s eastern coastline!

Not only is it all for a good cause, but you will get to meet some of Centennial Park’s very friendly, like-minded volunteers too! (You can read more about them here.)

And here are some photos of great Clean Up Australia Day events over the past few years.

  • The circle of (a tree) life

    We receive many questions about trees that are felled or removed despite ‘appearing healthy’ on the outside. But what many people do not know is that trees, like humans, are susceptible to a large and diverse range of health issues and structural defects. Eventually a tree may need to be removed once other tree management strategies become insufficient for public safety or sustaining the health of a tree.
