Convict Capers

Children are being transported to the early 1800's and hear about children's stories of the time.

Discover the stories of colonial children and delve into the lives of Parramatta’s colourful characters on this interactive tour through the city’s heritage sites. Where did the colony’s children live, how did they learn, what games did they play, what did they eat? Who were the adults that governed their lives?

This tour is suitable for families with primary school children, 7 years old and up, and includes activities to keep them engaged, enlightened and involved. Parents/Carers must supervise any children in their care.

Bookings are essential. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to start time, for registration. Wear comfortable shoes. Bring water, snack and a hat.

Parents and guardians are required to stay with the children for the duration of the activity.
