The Darug people are Parramatta’s first people and the traditional custodians of this land. Parramatta’s name comes from their word “burramatta, meaning “the place of eels”.
This easy walk, along the river and in beautiful Parramatta Park, is a wonderful opportunity to spend time on country with an Aboriginal traditional custodian, learning about connections to land, plant uses, tools, hunting and other aspects of local culture.
The activity will NOT be cancelled in case of rain or otherwise adverse weather. Instead, it will become an interactive cultural presentation in the Heritage Centre, where you meet. Should the weather improve, a shorter walk will take place.
The walk is wheelchair accessible, however it includes a few short sloping ascents/descents, and some gravelled surfaces.
Bookings are essential. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to start time, for registration. Wear comfortable shoes. Bring water, snack and a hat.
