More details

Join us on a delicious journey through Australia’s ancient history and stories from pre-colonial times and early settlement.

Walk the lands of the Darug nation, sharing stories from centuries, Indigenous, colonial, and modern. Enjoy the taste of Australian classic and modern fusion cuisines of our melting-pot migration nation.

The Australian foodscape is so exciting. We live in a world of authentic recipes enhanced by high-quality local produce, chefs, restauranteurs, and artisanal producers. Australia food culture has really come of age!

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 and NSW State Government though the Stronger Communities fund.
