What is Heritage?

Parramatta's Aboriginal Heritage

The heritage of Parramatta includes places and items that are important to the local Aboriginal community or Aboriginal people of NSW. These are places or objects that people have a connection to, both physically and spiritually.

Aboriginal heritage can include natural features such as creeks or mountains, ceremonial or story places or areas of more contemporary cultural significance such as Aboriginal missions or post contact sites.

Council has a database of known Aboriginal archaeological and historic/cultural sites and information about the location of land that could contain Aboriginal sites. The protection of Aboriginal heritage is maintained by the relevant planning controls applicable to Parramatta Local Government Area.
