Current Sydney Projects

To apply for a weekly session on a Sydney Green Gym program, please submit an application by selecting your preferred project below. It is only necessary to submit one application to participate in a Green Gym project.

If you would like to speak to someone regarding a Green Gym project before applying, please contact your local office.

Each three hour session starts with a safety briefing and session overview, followed by a warm up before getting into the day’s tasks. Mid-session you will have a break for refreshments and a healthy snack. Activities will continue until it is time to cool down before wrapping up the session. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy the tranquil settings with a like-minded group of people as you go at your own pace – take it as easy or make it more challenging, it’s up to you!

This program is made possible through funding from NSW Family and Community Services (FACS) through the Liveable Communities Program.

Join us at Centennial Parklands for some fun and gentle exercise outdoors as you help us restore habitat and enhance biodiversity. Lying in the heart of Sydney, Centennial Parklands is one of the world’s finest and most used urban spaces.

Our activities will be focussed at two locations: The Guriwal Trail, and the Education Precinct.

The Guriwal Trail is located in the southern section of the Parklands, between Fearnley Grounds & Ash Paddock. The vision is to create a vibrant and educational green space enjoyed by school groups, local Aboriginal groups and day-visitors. Our conservation activities will contribute to this vision by helping remove invasive plant species and enhance biodiversity.

The Education Precinct is an important and well-utilised part of Centennial Parklands, and the outdoor education area is especially valued by children and school groups. Like the Guriwal Trail, our main goal is to help improve biodiversity in the area surrounding the Precinct by removing noxious plants.

Both sites are shaded and tree-filled, with close access to bathrooms. Most days, the sounds of birdlife compete with those of children playing nearby.

Join us at Bicentennial Park in La Perouse for some fun and gentle exercise outdoors as you help us restore habitat and enhance biodiversity in this scenic coastal reserve. Nestled between Yarra Bay foreshore and Frenchman’s Bay, the green reserve adjoins Botany Bay and features its long rolling lawns, sand dunes and pockets of native bushland.

Green Gym activities will help to protect and restore the reserve’s pockets of remnant Eastern Suburb Banksia Scrub, which is an endangered ecological community. Participants will also take part in some dune planting activities thus contributing to current conservation efforts to rehabilitate and further protect the coastal sand dunes at Yarra Beach. This project will also help to revitalise a community garden with the hope of making it a vibrant, productive and welcoming place for learning, relaxation and food growing once again.
