Parramatta Research and Visitor Centre

346a Church Street Parramatta

We are located beside the historic Lennox Bridge a short 10 minute walk from Parramatta Station and River Cat ferry wharf. The Research team provides a great general introduction to the Parramatta area as well as in depth research and primary resources relating to Parramatta and the broader Western Sydney. Many of these are available on this website while original objects, texts, family history records and maps can be viewed at our research library. You can also visit the centre to participate in events and education programs linked to its collections. If you have something you would like to know and can’t find it on our website ask us a question.
