About the site

Discover Parramatta is produced by City of Parramatta Council with the support of local organisations and businesses.

Discover and search

At the top of each site page there is a standard site search facility where you enter keywords and the site gives you a page with results that match those words.

In addition, the left hand column of most pages contains a "Discover" tool. This tool uses a combination of drop-down menus and multiple-selection checkboxes to allow you to search for information using some or all of the following criteria:
* What: Type of event or activity you are interested in
* Where: The location (you can make more than one selection)
* Who: Are you after something for the whole family or just the kids
* When: Find out what is on tomorrow or next month

You can also use the "Discover" tool to filter or refine search results.

Eating Out search

The left hand column of the "Eating Out" section of the site has a search tool that is similar to the "Discover" tool.

The "Eating Out" search tool uses multiple-selection checkboxes to allow you to search using some or all of the following criteria:
* Where: The different dining districts in the Parramatta area
* Cuisine: The types of food, eg Modern Australian, Middle Eastern, etc
* Venue: The types of establishments, e.g. CafĂ©, Restaurant, Club
* Opening Time: Breakfast, lunch, evenings
* Average Main Price: Indication of main course cost using four categories of price

There is also keyword search where you can search by special interests or dietary requirements.
