COVID-19 has made us all re-think our ideas of travel. There has never been a better time to travel locally, supporting local business with international flavours and stories. You can still travel and taste the world and you won’t need your passport.

Parramatta will surprise even the most local locals. We’ve had guests who have lived, worked, or studied in Parramatta for years, without discovering these food and culture gems!

As the original capital of the colony, Parramatta was the home of the first ten Governors. The arable land made it the colony’s first food bowl. Now Sydney’s booming second central city is overflowing with history and stories. Stories of the First Nation Darug people, the early colonies, and a city in the process of urban renewal.

Parramatta is now realising its destiny as a major city centre. Join us and we’ll treat you to some of our region’s best, brightest, and most delicious delights!

This tour is proudly supported through funding from City of Parramatta Council.

"Despite being a Sydney local, I knew so little about Parramatta! The tour was interesting, fun and informative, covering history, culture, diversity and lots of food! Our guide Sophie was fantastic. Highly recommended tour for visitors and locals alike!"
