Explore First Nations music, food, dance, and tradition in Parramatta.


Warami brings together a program of events and activities honouring traditional and contemporary First Nations culture in the City of Parramatta.

Warami (pronounced Wuh-rah-mee) is a Dharug word meaning ‘good to see you’. Calling Parramatta home for over 60,000 years, Warami recognises the Burramattagal people’s connection to the land and community.

In 2024, our Warami program included films and a musical theatre production at Riverside Theatres, workshops at PHIVE and the Burramatta NAIDOC festival in Parramatta Park.

For over 60,000 years the Parramatta area has been home of the Burramattagal people, a clan of the Dharug, who settled along the upper reaches of the Parramatta River. City of Parramatta respectfully recognises the Traditional Owners of the land and waters of Parramatta, the Dharug people, and pay our respects to the Elders past, present and emerging. We extend our respect to all First Nations people visiting these sites.
