Centennial Parklands has partnered with Sydney Explorer Bus to create Sydney’s newest Explorer ‘Hop On-Hop Off’ bus stop, a stop that will make the iconic Parklands more accessible than ever to domestic and international guests.
The new bus stop is located on Oxford Street (between Jersey Road and Queen Street in Paddington), directly opposite Centennial Park’s historic Paddington Gates which have welcomed countless visitors since the Park first opened in 1888.
Long before European settlement, the site of the Park was an important meeting place for local Aboriginal clans. It was largely covered in rocky outcrops and swampland.
Today, Centennial Park is still a popular meeting place for locals and travellers alike. History buffs can delight in exploring the ‘birthplace of modern Australia’ or seeing the Charles Dickens Statue – one of only three in the world!
For those who enjoy exercise, the Park is a haven for walkers, joggers and cyclists. Visitors can hire a bike, enjoy a horse ride or relax with a picnic. Centennial Park is also the home to all manner of native birds and animals, as well as a beautiful collection of trees and formal gardens.
The Explorer tourist bus service now connects tourists with one of Sydney’s most remarkable places.
The Centennial Parklands bus stop is ‘Stop G’ on the ‘Bondi Beach and Harbour Bays’ Explorer tour. See online tour map here.
