One of the voices you hear on the show was Professor Paul Ashton from UTS. Paul co-authored the original book: Centennial Park – A History (1988). Now out of print, and 25 years on, we asked Paul to update the book for re-publishing. Expect to see this available by the end of the year – a great legacy from the Centennial Park 125th Anniversary!

Stay tuned, or subscribe to our eNewsletter to be one of the first to know when the book is available.
