Macquarie Bridge 29 Oct

The Parramatta Park Trust and NSW Public Works are currently completing a $300,000 restoration of the Governor Macquarie-era convict stone bridge over Murray Gardens Creek in Parramatta Park.

Starting as a wide timber bridge built in the late 1790s before Governor Macquarie had a stone arch bridge, wall and dam constructed by convict labourers in the latter part of his governorship, this piece of Parramatta history is almost finished restoration!

Join us on either on Saturday 23 April or Saturday 21 May to explore the journey and rediscovery of the Convict Stone Bridge and Murray Gardens Creek historic landscape.
