Experience the village feel of Parramatta, an outer-western suburb of Sydney that has grown into a city in its own right.

Fringed by parks and waterways, the city is the perfect spot to shake off some of Sydney’s bustle and just relax. Explore a streetscape speckled with colonial-era treasures and sample the city’s dining scene. Linger a little while and you’ll find local street festivals, markets and community events. Stretch out in Parramatta Park or hitch a ride on the ferry that cruises down the Parramatta River. This is Sydney when it’s at home.
