Bicentennial Park, Sydney Olympic Park

Walk, cycle or run through 40 hectares of parklands featuring wetlands, meadows, playgrounds and picnic areas at Bicentennial Park.

Bicentennial Park is located inside Sydney Olympic Park, a 40-hectare park combining the Badu Mangroves wetlands with beautifully landscaped parklands with gentle hills, meadows and a large lake.

We have been visiting the park for years, and love how much space there is to explore inside the park, with monuments, boardwalks, wildlife and playgrounds to occupy us.

Tips for visiting Bicentennial Park

BYO bike and cycle the many smooth trails throughout the park.

Hire a bike if you don’t own your own from the bike hire next to WatervieW.

Climb to the top of the Treillage Tower for beautiful views of the wetlands, Homebush Bay and the city in the distance.

Visit in autumn for gorgeous fall colours.

Parking on weekends is tricky so arrive early. It is, however free but not all-day.

Bring a picnic or BBQ lunch and blanket to sit on the grass and enjoy the serenity.

There is a cafe at WatervieW serving coffee, cakes, breakfast and other light meals.

Take the boardwalk through the mangroves.

Dogs are welcome! They must be on-leash at all times except for the one designated off-leash area near P5a car park off Hill Road.

Take the kids to one of the two playgrounds. The playground next to WatervieW features a Liberty Swing.
