The Dairy and Rangers Cottages exclusive Guided Tours
This is your chance to explore one of Australia s oldest buildings, the Dairy Cottage built in 1796-1801, in the World Heritage listed Parramatta Park. Take a tour and delve into the site's fascinating stories of this cottage, once home to ex-convict George Salter. Examine original construction details, including lath and plaster walls, colonial brickwork and a shingle roof.
This site later became part of Governor Macquarie's Domain and converted into a dairy. A sunken dairy room was constructed on the site. You may be able to guess where this sunken dairy was built! It was a mystery for many years!
The story of the Dairy and Rangers Cottages together with Parramatta Park - The People s Park - unfold in an engaging audio-visual exhibition. This presentation and tour offer fascinating glimpses into the Aboriginal and colonial past of Parramatta.
