Parramatta Park

Old Government House and Domain (Parramatta Park) is one of the 11 historic places that together form the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage property.

There's evidence of 20,000 years of Aboriginal occupation and land use and it was  a Vice-Regal domain from 1788. It became a public park in 1858  - one of the earliest in the world.

Over 2.3 million people visit every year and it is a great place to picnic, ride bicycles, rollerblade, walk, run and play cricket and football. We play host to a range of events every year including music festivals, the all day Parramatta Australia Day celebrations, Sydney Symphony in Parramatta Park, and the Mother's Day Classic.

The park has playgrounds, BBQs and picnic areas and a range of dining facilities to meet your needs.
