Kids in the Park at Sydney Olympic Park

In the 2018 January school holidays Sydney Olympic Park Authority again welcomes Fizzics Education to the Education Center in Bicentennial Park to provide a range of exciting, engaging and hands-on school holiday programs as part of the "Kids in the Park" favourites!

 

  • Half and full day holiday program workshops and activities appropriate for all Sydney school aged children!
  • Please bring food, a drink, a hat and appropriate clothing for hands-on science activities.
  • No nuts on site allowed
 

How to find the Education Center

Enter Bicentennial Park via the entrance at the corner of Australia Avenue & Shirley Strickland Avenue (suburb is Sydney Olympic Park). Follow the one way street past the function center. You should see signs to "P10f", the closest car park to the Education Center in Bicentennial Park. Walk 150m from the end of P10f car park and you'll find us there (refer to the map above). 

The closest train station to the Center is Concord West, not Olympic Park. 

What to bring to our holiday programs
 
  • lunch and morning tea 
  • hat
  • water bottle
  • any medications

    If children stay for the full day simply book your child into 2 x half day workshops and we'll take care of them during the break!

NB: No peanuts allowed on-site

These holiday programs often sell out early; get in early to ensure that you don't miss out!  A Parent or Guardian is required to sign the child in upon arrival and then sign them out when picking them up after the workshop. Refunds available if the event is cancelled or rescheduled.
