A guided tour of historic Parramatta.
Starting from Moore Street, Glenbrook, we will travel by bus to the very historic Parramatta. There, we will visit the Lancer Barracks and Museum, the oldest continuously used military barracks on mainland Australia. Other highlights of the trip include the Female Orphan School, the vision of Governor Philip King and the Rev Samuel Marsden. Construction began in 1813 and the building is now part of the University of Western Sydney. We will encounter Samuel Marsden again at St Johns Cemetery, where he is buried along with other colonial dignitaries, including Lady Mary Fitzroy, wife of the NSW Governor and D’Arcy Wentworth, father of William Charles. A delicious lunch will be provided after a drive in Parramatta Park.
