Parramatta Heritage Rides

Bulldozer edition Sun 21 Jun

Touring the sites of recent or impending heritage losses including Willow Grove and Cumberland Hospital Precinct. A sad addition to our ride collection.

Parramatta Heritage Rides have been touring Parramatta's rich heritage since 2003. Founded by Paul Bowyer and Peter Gilbert, the rides showcase Parramatta's heritage through different themes. Peter retired in 2019, and Anthony Parker has taken over. 


Parramatta is well-known for its heritage, but a lot of it is not hard to find. Join one of our rides to see and learn our Indigenous and European history - its buildings, sites, characters and stories. You'll be amazed at what you find. 

Parramatta Heritage Rides are in conjunction with Bike North. 


Bookings are essential. The rides are free, but a $10 deposit is required to reserve a place. It's refunded when you attend. 


You'll need your own bicycle in working order. We are unable to offer bike hire.
