Parramatta, to the west of Sydney, is a city of elegant parks and important heritage sites with a vibrant multicultural population. You'll find cuisines from around the globe and a busy arts scene with a major entertainment centre and several artists' studios. The original custodians of the Parramatta area are the Baramadagal of the Dharug nation. This is where Parramatta gets its name from. Established in November 1788, Parramatta supplied initial food for the fledgling colony and succeeded to grow crops along with the fertile lands of the upper Parramatta River. Parramatta has some beautiful examples of early colonial architecture. Visit historic sites, some of which are UNESCO World Heritage-listed, such as Old Government House and Parramatta Park. Elizabeth Farm, Hambledon Cottage, Experiment Farm Cottage and the Dairy and Ranger's Cottages are some of the must-see destinations. Enjoy a picnic, bush walk or swim at beautiful Lake Parramatta. Parramatta is easily accessed via a stunning ferry ride from Circular Quay or by a faster train connection. For more information, visit the Parramatta website, call the Visitor Information Centre or visit in person. Due to COVID-19 restrictions on visitations exist. The Parramatta Heritage and Visitor Information Centre are currently closed. Please call for further information.
