How to get there?

From Callam Offices you can walk under the offices and across Easty Street to Eddison Park or turn right onto Launceston Street and right into the Eddison Park car park.

From the Visitors Centre continue south over Commonwealth Bridge. Take Capital Circle around Parliament House and stay on this road for 6 km veering left onto Yamba Drive. Turn right into Launceston Street and left into the Eddison Park car park.

Why is this interesting?

This 14 hectare park has a unique radial design and a central ornamental pond, which creates individual spaces. It is a site for local ANZAC memorial services. Two memorials recall the loss of the three Eddison sons in World War II. The Eddisons owned the property of Yamba, predating the development of Woden.

There are also a number of large Candlebark trees, remnants of woodland that pre-dates European settlement in the area. The new multi-use recreation facility includes a skate plaza, play equipment and a performance area.
