  • Parramatta Artists' Studios have teamed up with the Western Sydney Arts Alliance program to present a two-week calendar of free school holiday activities for primary and secondary school students. Registration not necessary, program information available from Friday 17 September.

  • Parramatta People video series

    This series will profile locals who have played an important role in our City’s rich and diverse history as well as individuals who are shaping our future today.

    This series captures a range of stories: from a young man who helped bridge the cultural divide between Parramatta’s early settlers and the Dharug people, to a talented colonial architect, and Parramatta Female Factory’s longest-serving matron. There is much to learn about the people who have helped make Parramatta the great city we know. New profiles to join the series coming soon.

    Note for teachers and students - these videos have been produced to address learning outcomes in the NSW curricula for primary school students.

    Baludarri - a Burramatagal man

    James Houison - a migrant architect

    Ann Gordon - Parramatta Female Factory Matron

    George Caley and Daniel Moowattin - Scientific Partnership

    Betty Eccles - a story of re-invention

    George Salter - from convict to cattleman
