Centennial Parklands is home to a variety of nocturnal creatures, from brushtail possums, microbats and tawny frogmouths to one of Sydney’s largest colonies of grey headed flying fox.

 

Idea #3: Park Detectives – Forensics Fun

Crime scene investigation comes to Centennial Park! This forensic science workshop will intrigue budding super sleuths who enjoy their science mixed with a bit of drama.
