World Heritage Wonders

Explore World Heritage listed Parramatta Park with all its history and stories with our knowledgeable guide.

This walking tour of World Heritage listed Parramatta Park includes lunch and visits to both Old Government House and the Dairy cottage.

Located safely away from the coast, Parramatta was the centre of governance in Colonial times. Old Government House and its domains, now known as Parramatta Park, are so universally significant that they have been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List for their cultural values.

The tour will include a visit to elegant Old Government House, the home of our first ten governors; the little known Dairy Cottage Precinct, including the third oldest building on the mainland and a walk through the monuments and heritage remains scattered throughout the park. A light lunch in heritage surrounds is included in the price.

This tour is suitable for adults and youth. Bookings are essential. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to start time, for registration. Wear comfortable shoes, bring a hat, water and sunblock.
