Sleep back in time in 5-star style
The Residences in Centennial Park are now offering locals and tourists the option of spending the night in one of two heritage cottages.

The cottages in Centennial Park have been carefully restored and refurbished as boutique self-contained short-stay accommodation experiences.

Centennial Parklands has refurbished two heritage cottages which are now available for boutique accommodation.


The operator of these new facilities is the family behind The Hughenden Hotel, a well-established and well-renowned hotel in Sydney's Woollahra.

The Victorian-style cottages will offer a five-star full hotel service, modern amenities, Wi-Fi, a breakfast of bespoke products, including locally-produced Centennial Park Honey from the Park's own bee hives, and a boutique selection from acclaimed Vincent chef's Todd Garrett and James Hird at The Hughenden.

Both the Superintendents Residence and Rangers Cottage are available for hire. The Superintendents Residence is located at the northern edge of Centennial Park adjacent to the Paddington Gates and more recently was used primarily as a temporary exhibition space, photography workshops and events.

The Rangers Cottage was built in 1898-99 as accommodation for the Head Ranger of Centennial Park and his family, which was occupied for this exact purpose for over 100 years. Located on Centennial Park's western boundary inside the Park adjacent the Robertson Road Gates, the Cottage is on an elevated position offering views across Grand Drive and Centennial Park. Since its use as accommodation for the Head Ranger, the cottage was refurbished in 2010, and used as office space, most recently by Conservation Volunteers Australia.

Centennial Parklands is less than 10 minutes from the Sydney CBD, and includes Centennial Park, Moore Park and Queens Park. It's also a major sporting facility for the community. It also includes Moore Park Golf and the Centennial Parklands Equestrian Centre.

The Parklands offer horse riding, bike hire, formal gardens and a vibrant range of community events all nearby.

The Residences are now open for bookings. For more information contact:

A ball park figure would be nice.

I agree with juzzb. a ball park figure might save me a phone call if I know it's going to be way outside my price range.

Rates range from $1,980/night for the Rangers Residence to $3,280/night for the Superintendents residence.
