From watching a major sporting match and browsing farmers markets to going horse riding, playing golf and enjoying a range of fun activities, Moore Park has it all. This entertainment, dining and leisure hub spans 115 hectares and includes the serene Centennial Parklands, all only a stone’s throw from the city centre.
Things to do
The Entertainment Quarter precinct is home to Fox Studios and a myriad of things to do, including a cinema, restaurants, bowling, markets, comedy and go-karting. The Cambridge Markets EQ are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays, under the Market Canopy, selling a range of delicious produce. Check out the events calendar to see what else is on.
Next to Moore Park are the pretty Centennial Parklands, with its expanse of greenery, ponds and gardens. Admire colourful native flora and fauna on a picnic in the manicured grounds. Explore this splendid environment by following the trails on horseback with Centennial Stables and Papillon Riding Stables or by bike. Bicycle hire is available from Centennial Park Cycles.
The world-famous Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) is the place to visit for sports fanatics. It hosts local and international cricket matches, including Test, One Day and Big Bash cricket in the warmer months; rugby league, soccer and Aussie Rules Football in the cooler months; and music acts all year-round.
The behind-the-scenes SCG Tour Experience is a 90-min guided walking tour of the historic sports ground, dressing rooms and SCG Museum, which houses cricket legends Don Bradman’s baggy green cap and Ricky Ponting's 2007 bat. In the Rugby League Museum, find priceless memorabilia and tributes to great players.
