Starting from the beginning of Dickens Drive, Centennial Park, this walk takes you on a circuit around the park. Centennial Park is host to a number of ponds and offers a chance to see the wildlife. The ponds are home to swans and ducks that wander around the park. It is even possible to encounter amusing moments when cars stop to allow the birds to cross the road. The grooves, greenery and wildflowers provide you with beautiful views. The path is paved, and there is little to no elevation through the walk. There are useful facilities such as toilettes and cafes around the area. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
