Parramatta Heritage Rides open up Parramatta's wealth of hidden heritage, including Australia's 3 oldest buildings (pre-1800!), its oldest cemetery (1790) and much, much more, through a variety of easy, themed bicycle rides with regular stops and commentary. Awarded a Commendation at the Parramatta City Council Heritage Awards, 2013. Come along and discover the fascinating story of Australia's second settlement on this fun history lesson in the classroom of the bicycle!
