Spend quality bonding time strolling around Parramatta Park

There’s always a lot to do and see at Parramatta Park. If you haven’t explored the culturally rich and natural landscape quite yet, taking your mum for some company on Mother’s Day is the perfect time to do so. From historical heritage sites such as the Dairy and Rangers Cottages and the Old Government House to unique, picturesque gardens such as Rumsey Rose Garden and Murray Gardens, you’re sure to enjoy a sunny autumn morning at Parramatta Park.

If you don’t want to plan your own walk, you could always opt to join one of the self-guided tours in Parramatta Park. This way, you can immerse yourself in history and nature without having to work out all the locations around the park yourself. Self-guided tours include those around the Dairy Precinct and Colonial Rose Hill.

The Dairy Precinct Tour includes interactive digital and multi-media displays restored from the 19th century, as well as educational talks about the area’s earliest Aboriginal and European history. For something a little more laid back, the Colonial Rose Hill tour will take you through Rose Hill’s colonial landscape as the second settlement town to ever be established in Australia.
