Our connection to nature is as old as our existence. First Nations cultures both in Australia and around the globe have practised a deep listening and connection to Country for thousands of years. However this connection has been interrupted by modern living, and as a result our physical, mental and emotional health is paying the price.

It has been a challenging time on a local and global scale with many of us facing unforeseen stress and anxiety. Time spent in nature with friends and family has been our antidote, with the Parklands seeing a 25% surge in visitation over the past 2 years.

Studies also show that time in nature can lower blood pressure and stress hormone levels, enhance immune systems, improve physical health, increase self-esteem, reduce anxiety, and improve mood. 

That’s why protecting your Parklands is more important than ever before. As the end of the financial year approaches we are seeking your support, with 100% of your donation going to the Foundation's Legacy Fund established to safeguard the future of the Parklands.


Your Parklands needs YOU!

Centennial Parklands is required to generate 100% of its operational income. The Foundation is depended on to help bridge the funding gap, raising funds to support the daily running of the Parklands, recurrent programs and aspirational projects that would otherwise not be possible.

How can you help? Make a direct impact and donate to your Parklands today.

Donations to the Centennial Parklands Foundation of $2 or more are fully tax-deductible.
