What's the The Residences Centennial Park? Two historic homes and gardens in beautiful Centennial Parklands. You can stay overnight, have your wedding or birthday, celebrations and be part of this iconic national park in Sydney where Australia became a nation.
So when I saw The Residences falling apart, it broke my heart. Thieves took everything, even the 1880s oak door, boring holes in the beautiful old sandstone blocks. So it was a huge financial and personal decision to restore these two historic residences in Centennial Parklands. My family worked tirelessly to bring them back to the park and Sydney. It's hosted community events like Writers In The Park where 100s of kids & readers came to hear Australian writers; the Easter petting zoo in the front garden; hosting Bondi Beach Public School families for a rendition of Libby Hathorn's picture book.
Well, we've done it! Four years and now finalist in the NSW Tourism Awards. Thankyou to my kids!
