Parramatta Heritage and Visitors Information Centre provide a unique starting point for discovering Parramatta – the city that tells the story of Australia! The centre combines tourist information; a local research and family history library; art, history or community exhibitions; school holiday programs and educational activities all under one roof.
On your visit, why not take in Parramatta: People and Place – an exhibition about the living heritage of Parramatta, featuring artefacts, artworks, oral histories, video and interactive technology. The exhibition traces the development of Parramatta through the experiences of Indigenous Australians, colonial personalities, and families of diverse cultural backgrounds who have all contributed to shaping the culture and landscape of the area.
Ask the centre’s friendly staff for advice on how to explore Parramatta. Choose different walking trails that will lead you to Parramatta’s historic sites, parks and waterways. Staff can assist with information about accommodation, restaurants, entertainment, events and shopping.
