From the First Nations people who cared for our lands for tens of thousands of years, to the establishment of the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW in Parramatta Park exactly 200 years ago - PHIVE’s very first exhibition explores and celebrates Parramatta’s agricultural history through produce and people.
This exhibition explores and celebrates Parramatta’s agricultural history through
people and the role ‘the Show’ played in recognising excellence and showtime
