The river played an important role in shaping Parramatta; the land, the city and its people. Over thousands of years the natural landscape was formed by the winding river, which created a catchment circled by hills where Parramatta stands today. Lush native vegetation from eucalypts to mangroves thrived along its banks, some of which you can still see today. Around this area is where the salt and fresh water met, providing an abundance of wildlife.
