Centennial Park Cycles

Cruise the park at your own leisurely pace, whether you bike ride, blade or power around on a tandem you’ll certainly enjoy the tranquillity and peacefulness this park exudes right in the middle of the hustle and bustle that surrounds you. There is so much to see, so many paths to take, you never know where you might end up!

Chris has an actual store on Clovelly Road, Randwick with all the stock, but has a bike hire spot just up the road from the restaurant which makes it a lot easier for you to hire a bike, whether it’s a tandem or a pedal car. Rates include helmet and if hiring rollerblades, all safety pads will be supplied.

Centennial Parklands Restaurant

With no noisy cars and street traffic you’ll feel like you’re in the countryside…enjoying the fresh air and the parks that surround you.

Perfect for that special event, corporate functions and first date… this restaurants natural charm mimics the historic parklands that surround.

Open for breakfast, lunch & dinner 7 days a week, you can come and treat yourself after that exhausting run and devour scrambled eggs and bacon or keep healthy and opt for fresh fruit salad with yoghurt and honey. If you’re more inclined to be waited on rather than a do-it-yourself picnic and BBQ, the lunch menu has something for all appetites; from sweet corn, coconut & ginger soup to salads or hearty sirloin steak that will make you not want to move from your seat.

Having a meal here or just a cuppa and dessert is the perfect place to avoid noisy cars and street traffic.

Centennial Park Cafe

If you’re on the run and after something a little bit more relaxed, then this café is the place for you. It's a super busy place to either eat in or takeaway. Great food, exceptional coffee, selling over 60 kilos a week, ice creams, drinks… the works.

They have a very thorough menu keeping everyone happy. The menu also includes a huge range of sandwiches, Turkish melts & baguettes plus sausage rolls and pies. The daily specials change regularly and the cakes, slices and snacks will fill that spot!
