Sydney West: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Westfield Parramatta

The centre is a complete retail, entertainment and lifestyle destination which includes a concourse of restaurants and cafes and an 11-screen Greater Union cinema complex with three Gold Class theatres.

A retail concourse joins Westfield Parramatta to the Parramatta Transport Interchange, train station and bus interchange.

St Johns Cathedral


St. John's Anglican Cathedral is a rather unusual church with twin spires. The site on which the church stands has been used continuously for a house-of-worship since 1803. The foundation stone of the first church on this site was laid in 1799, during Governor King's term of office. It was the only church in the colony until 1809.

It became the church of Reverend Samuel Marsden, whom history has given the moniker 'The Flogging Parson'. This was due to his passionate detestation of sin and his conviction that Parramatta's morality could be preserved only by the most rigorous disciplinary measures.

The twin steeples were completed in 1819. The building fell into disrepair and it was found necessary to completely rebuild the church. Only the steeples and tower remain today as part of the earlier church. The north and south transepts were added in 1883 by Colonial Architect, Edmund Blackett.

With a retired Lancer as guide, hear stories of the Regiment's ceremonial duties at home and overseas as Vice-Regal Escort, and of its active service in the Boer War, in WWI as the First Light Horse at Gallipoli and Palestine, and in WWII in New Guinea and Borneo where it mounted what is to this day Australia's largest ever tank attack at Balikpapan.

View one of Australia's best Boer War collections, including handwritten first known versions of Banjo Patterson war poems; clamber over the collection of vintage armoured vehicles, and see the world from inside a 50 ton Centurion Main Battle Tank.

Parramatta Park


World Heritage Listed Parramatta Park is a must see for visitors to Sydney.

Colonists, convict and free, were first successful in growing sufficient food to feed themselves here. The park was too attractive to be reserved for cropping for long and was used by successive Governors as respite from the stresses of running a very large open air prison. Following a determined public campaign, the area was gazetted a People's Park in 1858.

Ever since then the parklands have been Parramatta's backyard!

There are two fun playgrounds and children can ride safely on the sealed off-road area. Tucked in beside the Macquarie Street entrance is a large formal rose garden which contains a rare collection of heritage roses.

History enthusiasts will want to take the curator's tour of the convict built, 18th century dairy building. Check out the park's web site for booking information and other events and festivals.
