Guests are now able to stay in a heritage cottage in one of the world’s great parks, just minutes from the Sydney CBD. The Residences in Centennial Park have officially opened and are expected to become an iconic experience for both locals and tourists.
The Residences encompass two heritage cottages – the Superintendents Residence and the Rangers Cottage – which have been carefully restored and refurbished to their former grandeur to become boutique self-contained short-stay accommodation experiences. Operated by the family behind The Hughenden Hotel in Woollahra, the new properties offer five-star full hotel service, modern amenities, Wi-Fi, a bespoke breakfast (including locally-produced Centennial Park Honey from the Park’s own bee hives), and more. Rates range from $1980 a night for the Rangers Residence to $3280 a night for the Superintendents, and they sleep six to eight people respectively.
About the Superintendents Residence
- It is a 19th-century Victorian-style residence located at the northern edge of Centennial Park adjacent to the Paddington Gates at the intersection of Oxford Street, Parkes Drive and Carrington Drive.
- Originally built in 1890-91 from sandstone quarried directly from the site.
- More recently it has been used as a temporary venue used for exhibitions, photography workshops and events.
About the Rangers Cottage
- It 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 sweeping views across Grand Drive and Centennial Park.
- The cottage was refurbished in 1971, and again in 2010, most recently by Conservation Volunteers Australia.
