The Residences in Centennial Park
Time Out says
Ah, Centennial Park – where cars are discouraged, rolling lawns are plenty and lazy amblers rule
Betcha didn’t know you can bunk down overnight in two historic residences inside Centennial Park. The four-bedroom Superintendent’s Cottage and the three-bedroom Ranger’s Cottage (known as The Residences) have been carefully restored and subsequently refurbished as self-contained boutique experiences. The nearby Hughenden Hotel in Woollahra runs them, and provides degustation dinners and a full breakfast delivered to the cottages for an extra cost. Expect modern amenities in the cottages, plus Wi-Fi and a continental breakfast of bespoke products including Centennial Park Honey from hives in the park.
When you wake up...Ride a bike to Flat White Café in Woollahra, which serves the best soy, well, flat whites and roasted tomato, cheese and ham toasties in the area. 98 Holdsworth St, Woollahra 2025. 02 9328 9922. flatwhitecafe.com.au. Mon-Sat 7am-3pm; Sun 8am-3pm.
During the day...A mode of transport that rarely gets a look in Sydney is horse riding. So saddle up and give it a go if you’re here. Centennial Stables offers lessons for four-year-olds through to adults.. Boots, helmets and equipment are all provided.
