Parramatta...

Back in 1839, Governor George Gipps, the 9th Governor of NSW, commissioned a set of 10 Boundary Stones to mark the beat for the local police. Many of these stones are still in their original locations. Come join us as we search out this unique collection, imagine the time past, and discover other surprising aspects of Parramatta's Heritage on the way, including David Lennox's resting place in St John's Cemetery and his famous bridge. 
Rides are subject to change and may be cancelled in the event of bad weather. Cancellations will be posted on this website and facebook page.

       Parramatta's unique heritage

Parramatta is Australia's 2nd European settlement. Before that it was home to the Burramattagul tribe of the Darug nation for thousands of years.

Since 2003, Parramatta Heritage Rides' Paul and Peter have been taking people to the  places that tell the stories, Indigenous and European, of the making of Parramatta and its history. Discover the buildings, people, stories and places on your bicycle. You'll be enthralled by what you find.

The rides are free and easy-paced, and are around 2 - 3 hours in duration. Different themes bring to light the many different aspects of this fascinating city's history. Learn your history - learn your story!
