Parramatta CBD

Parramatta is the historic heart of Sydney's west, a dynamic city that features beautiful parks and colonial sites as well as world-class food, arts and entertainment.

As the second largest CBD in Sydney, you can enjoy a day's shopping, immerse yourself in the busy arts scene or explore the city's fascinating past.

A scenic route to Parramatta is by Rivercat from Circular Quay, near the Sydney Opera House. You'll glide under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and down the estuary of the Parramatta River. From there you can walk or cycle along the Parramatta River foreshore to Parramatta Park, or have a swim, picnic or bushwalk at Lake Parramatta Reserve.

Parramatta's 'Eat Streets' offer a thriving choice of international restaurants from Greek, Italian and Lebanese to Cuban or Japanese. World-class chef Jamie Oliver brings rustic Italian fare to the table with Jamie's Italian Trattoria, while foodie faves such as the Bourke Street Bakery and The Emporium have also made Parramatta their new home. The city's multicultural mix is also celebrated with Parramasala – an annual gala of parades, parties, exotic bazaars and food stalls.
