Noise management

The following applies to all major events held in Parramatta Park. Please check with our event management team for the guidelines applicable to your event.


  • The Trust’s Noise Abatement Plan for Open Air Concerts and Events in Parramatta Park must be used in developing a noise management plan specific to your event.
  • An event hotline number must operate during the event.
  • Any noise enquiries must be registered in a log. This must be supplied to the Trust within 24 hours of the event.
  • A full noise management report must be provided within 30 days of the event.
  • This plan minimises the impact of noise on both neighbouring residents and wildlife.


Amplified music

 In general, amplified music is limited to only being broadcast between 10am-10pm Sunday to Thursday, and 10am-11pm on Friday, Saturday or the day immediately before a public holiday. All soundchecks for high-impact events must not occur before 10am.

Some events that the Trust deem as not being high-impact may broadcast amplified music outside of these times.
