Parramatta Park

Sydney sightseeing

Parramatta Park is located adjacent to Parramatta Stadium, in the western Sydney suburb of Parramatta. Although the park is now very modern and surrounded by a series of recreation and community establishments, Parramatta Park has great historical value to the community.

Parramatta Park

Originally, Parramatta was the political capital of the state, and Old Government House is located in the park grounds. Old Government House is one of the eleven historic locations that form the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage property on the UNESCO world heritage list. This building provides rare insight into the life of early Australian settlers, Victorian architecture, and a perspective on how Australia has developed as a nation.

The surrounding park was originally known as the Governor's Domain, and was land set aside specifically for farming needs of the Governor's household. Today the area contains a bowling club, a golf club, a high school, a stadium and a swimming pool, making it an active hub of recreational pursuits. The natural amphitheatre is another highlight of the park. Once named 'The Crescent' by Governor Philip, the amphitheatre was used for outdoor concerts and performances.

Parramatta Park

The area is now home to many birds and environmental landscapes. Parramatta Park is one of the largest in western Sydney, and perfect for the whole family. Address: Pitt St, Parramatta, NSW, 2150.
