Visiting Parramatta – A City Guide

Parramatta is located on the banks of the Parramatta River, halfway between Sydney’s city centre and the charming Blue Mountains. It’s a buzzing retail and business area for western Sydney, with a thriving dining and cultural scene, as well as excellent shopping.

Parramatta: city layout

Nestled amid western Sydney’s urban sprawl, Parramatta combines gleaming high-rise towers, relaxing riverbanks and leafy streets and parks. The CBD (Central Business District), with its ordered grid of streets, is the heart of the city and is considered Sydney’s second CBD.

The Parramatta River, which flows into Sydney Harbour, winds its way through the city from spacious Parramatta Park in the west to the campus of Western Sydney University in the east. Church Street crosses over the river and is a cosmopolitan hub of bars and alfresco dining.

Historical sites in Parramatta

Parramatta has a number of interesting historical buildings that are open to the public. These include several churches, such as St. John’s Cathedral, built in 1855, and All Saints Church, built in 1862. Elizabeth Farm is a rare example of an early colonial bungalow, set in a lush garden.

Parramatta Town Hall is an ornate, pink-coloured Victorian building on the edge of Centenary Square. From here it’s a short walk – via the charming Tudor-style George Street Gatehouse, built in 1885 – to the green acreage of Parramatta Park. While in the park, visit Old Government House. Built by convicts, this handsome mansion dates from 1799 and was the country residence for the first 10 governors of New South Wales.

If you’re feeling hungry or thirsty, head to the Woolpack Hotel on George Street. Founded in 1796, it’s one of Australia’s oldest pubs and serves excellent Thai food.

The concierge recommends…

● The Parramatta River Ferry connects Parramatta with Sydney’s world-famous harbour, at Circular Quay, in less than an hour. Expect breathtaking views as it passes Sydney Olympic Park and Cockatoo Island.
● Dress up and experience the thrill of a day at the horse races, with a visit to Rosehill Gardens.
● Motor racing fans will love Valvoline Raceway, a dirt track for speedway cars that attracts a loud, raucous crowd.
● Watch a sporting event or rock concert, or simply explore the extensive parklands that make up Sydney Olympic Park, a 15-minute drive from central Parramatta.

Hotels in Parramatta

Whether you’re looking for an exciting, bustling stay in the city centre or a more peaceful retreat by the river, accommodation in Parramatta is varied and plentiful.

Parramatta city centre is the ideal location if you’re keen to be surrounded by the best of what the city has to offer, including restaurants, pubs, theatres and shopping.

Located just south of the city centre is Harris Park, a vibrant, multicultural suburb with a diverse mix of restaurants and independent retailers.

There are several hotels in North Parramatta, which is a quieter, more residential neighbourhood on the north side of the Parramatta River. It’s also home to scenic Lake Parramatta Reserve, a tranquil oasis in the middle of the city.

A 20-minute drive to the north-east is residential Macquarie Park – a good choice for business guests visiting the Riverside Corporate Park or Macquarie University in North Ryde.

Eating Out in Parramatta

Parramatta’s ethnic diversity is represented in its food. The city has several buzzing dining precincts, and you can take your pick of global flavours, at price points that will suit all budgets.

Church Street in the city centre is known locally as “Eat Street”. This lively strip offers Italian, Chinese, Thai and Mediterranean cooking in smart, modern eateries, many with seats outside. Try Jamie Oliver’s Italian Trattoria or popular burger chain Grill’d. If you have a craving for Asian cuisine, the south end of Church Street is Parramatta’s answer to Sydney’s Chinatown.

Nearby Phillip Street has several stylish, upmarket restaurants, including a large outpost of the Bavarian Bier Café and the Port Bar, which offers roof-top bar, modern Australian food and river views.

Multicultural Harris Park draws lovers of Indian food. You’ll find Greek, Italian and Japanese eateries here too, as well as sweet Lebanese treats. North Parramatta is a great destination for pizza lovers.

The chef recommends...

● Enjoy high tea in the charming Macquarie Street Gatehouse Tea Rooms, built in 1887 on the edge of Parramatta Park.
● Try the five-course tasting menu at The Emporium, a stylish, sprawling place containing a modern Australian restaurant, bar, bakery and coffee roastery.
● Tuck into authentic German beer and sausages at the Bavarian Bier Café. It’s housed in a revamped church and has a spacious beer garden.
● Savour some tasty north Indian classics, such as chicken tikka or murgh makhni, at Ginger Indian in Harris Park.

Shopping in Parramatta

Parramatta offers a wide range of retail opportunities, from vast, modern shopping centres to independent one-offs and a bustling farmers’ market. And if you want more choice, it’s only half an hour by train to the multitude of shops in Sydney city centre.

Westfield Parramatta is one of the biggest shopping malls in Australia, with nearly 500 retailers including department store David Jones and discount giant Kmart. It also has cafés, restaurants and an 11-screen multiplex.

Centenary Square is a modern, open-air plaza with a colourfully lit fountain at its heart. Near the restaurants of Church Street and historic buildings including Parramatta Town Hall, the square is sometimes used for outdoor markets, live performances and big-screen sports.

The lively, multicultural enclave of Harris Park, a short distance to the south, is packed with Indian fashion boutiques, spice shops and delis, and Lebanese sweet shops.

Unique shopping in Parramatta

● Admire the beauty of Indian jewellery, weaving and embroidery at the exotic Saree Shop in Harris Park.
Parramatta Farmers Market takes place every Friday in Centenary Square. Delicious foodstuffs for sale include Brazilian tapioca, Turkish gözleme and German bratwurst, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods and preserves.
● Browse fashion, homewares, art and crafts – all handmade in Australia – at the Dreamers Market. It’s held sporadically in the courtyard at the Parramatta Riverside Theatres.

Culture & Nightlife in Parramatta

Parramatta’s vibrant cultural scene centres around the multi-functional Parramatta Riverside Theatres complex and the annual summer Sydney Festival. For entertainment after dark, the city offers plenty of energetic bars and nightspots.

Parramatta Riverside Theatres has something for everyone. You can watch professional theatre, dance, opera and comedy shows, from around Australia and abroad, and it’s a key venue for Sydney’s many festivals. Plenty of new releases and mainstream films are shown at the multi-screen Event Cinemas at the Westfield Parramatta mall.

History lovers will enjoy a visit to Hambledon Cottage, a colonial Georgian cottage built in 1824 with convict-made sandstock bricks. Inside are 19th-century furnishings, including a four-poster bed constructed from Australian red cedar timber.

Parramatta city centre is the place to go for nightlife: Phillip Street and Church Street are lined with bars and outdoor diners. You can try unusual German brews at the popular Bavarian Bier Café or, for something different, Sabu specialises in creative cocktails made from saké.

Parramatta’s finest drinking venues

● Enjoy a schooner of beer in one of Parramatta’s historic pubs, such as the Woolpack Hotel, which dates from 1796.
● Sit outside with a chilled glass of wine as you soak up views over the Parramatta River at Port Bar.
● Sample delicious tapas and tropical cocktails at the buzzing Parramatta outpost of Cuban-themed Coco Cubano.
● For live music or DJs sets, check out the Collector Hotel and River Canyon Restaurant.

Leisure in Parramatta

Parramatta has some lovely spots where you can relax and enjoy nature. Parramatta Park, with its manicured lawns, rose gardens and historic buildings, is a short walk from the city centre. Further north, Lake Parramatta Reserve is a spacious bushland area with swimming and boating facilities and walking trails.

Be sure to pack your swimsuit, so you can enjoy Parramatta’s outdoor swimming complexes. A ferry ride along the Parramatta River is a memorable way to visit spectacular Sydney Harbour, or you can simply stroll along the river foreshore.

Further west are the lovely Blue Mountains. It’s a 90-minute train ride from Parramatta to Katoomba, where you can visit Echo Point to see the Three Sisters rocks and experience the beauty and vastness of the Megalong Valley.

Exciting attractions near Parramatta

● Challenge yourself at the Labyrinth Escape Rooms. You get locked in a themed room for an hour, where the only way out is to solve a puzzle using your senses and working as a team.
● Spend the day splashing about on water slides and thrill rides at Wet ‘n’ Wild in nearby Prospect.
● If you’re feeling adventurous, test yourself on the tree-top rope courses and “flying foxes”, aka zip-lines, at TreeTop Adventure Park. Alternatively, drive south for an hour to Stanwell Tops, where you can soar high above the ocean on a tandem hang-gliding ride.

Latest Parramatta Hotel Reviews


Sydney
By The Diver
If you’re staying in this marvellous city the Holiday Inn is the place to stay, best location, right beside the bridge and within comfortable walking distance of the opera house and the harbour and [More] ferry boats. Also the tour buses stop outside. This is old Sydney at its best, visit the Sunday market, just outside the door. [Less]
Great place to end a cruise
By DJ from TX
Had a wonderful stay in old Sydney just a block from the cruise terminal. Our room had a great view of the opera house (every evening after the cruise ships sailed) & the rooftop pool deck had great [More] views of both the opera house & the harbor bridge. Just a short walk to trains or ferries with several options to eat in the neighborhood. Weekends there's even a little market right behind the hotel. Lovely hotel in a great historical area [Less]
Staff at main counter
By DizzyDi
We found a few staff members to come across as grumpy and not very helpful. It made us feel uneasy and felt we couldn't ask them any questions. For this reason we chose to self check out so we didn't [More] have to deal with them. We also found quite a few plates/food and glasses left outside other rooms for over a day. It wasn't pleasant to see it there. Over all comfort of the room was excellent and very clean. [Less]
Good location
By Russell
Enjoyed the stay. Good choices for breakfast. Biggles Bar is easy place to relax at the end of the day. Plus the food is affordable with excellent service. Do not like sleeping under a doona. [Less]
Consistently enjoyable
By FWPC
I have stayed here a number of times. On all occasions this hotel has provided a friendly and enjoyable break in my travels. Next time I need a hotel close to Sydney airport I will book here. And I [More] am happy to recommend this hotel to friends and colleagues. [Less]
Great hotel and location
By TBI2019
This hotel is about 15 minutes away from Sydney airport. It is very clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant is a little pricey but we didn't know of anything close by so it was convenient. [More] The Sydney Super Shuttle airport transportation was fine going to the airport but beware on the reverse. It is the last stop and traffic can be terrible at times. It is very affordable, however. I would stay here again if just passing through and didn't have to go to the city. [Less]
Great location
By Merri02
Absolutely love the beautiful location and coastal views from the Crowne Plaza Coogee. Plenty of cafes and restaurants within walking distance, not far from Bondi Beach, Bondi Junction Westfield [More] shopping and a 15 minute drive to the CBD. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. My only comment would be the dinner menu in the restaurant needs some more options or daily specials. Enjoyed a relaxing 2 days and will be back again soon! [Less]
Great location, friendly staff
By RJxyz
We enjoyed our stay in all respects , the only adverse comment is that the bathrooms are outdated and in our opinion require complete refurbishment [Less]
Great Stay at Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach
By Gary
What a great hotel, all the staff need to be complemented on their customer care skills they were excellent. The Hotel is in a prime spot for the bars and restaurants and for public transport.
