Parramatta Heritage Centre

Heritage Centre

The Heritage Centre provides a great general introduction to the Parramatta area as well as in depth research and primary resources relating to Parramatta and the broader Western Sydney.

Many of these are available online while original objects, texts, family history records and maps can be viewed at our research library. You can also visit the Centre to see exhibitions, events and education programs linked to its collections.

If you have something you would like to know and can’t find it on our site, ask us a question.
