Parramatta is a city of converging cultures, histories and stories.
Parramatta has been many things to many people throughout its long history; the home of the Burramatta clan of the Darug Aboriginal people, a foundation for the fledgling European colony, and then the commercial and retail centre, for its expanding population - a cultural hub and meeting place.
