Your kids will never run out of things to do in Parramatta
As the oldest inland European settlement established in 1788, Parramatta city has a rich collection of heritage sites and beautifully landscaped gardens. The Parramatta river has always been the lifeblood of Sydney’s second city; fresh water from its adjoining creeks meets salt water from the harbour.
Parramatta was also home to the indigenous Burramatta clan. Their name literally means “the place where eels lie down,” and is how this city derived its quirky name.
While rich in history and culture, Parramatta is also lively and child-friendly. Blessed with beautiful parks and lakes, heritage sites, outdoor play areas, sporting venues, and exciting festivals and events, it is the quintessential family-friendly destination in Australia.
