Parramatta in Colour

ABC Archives

As part of the STORYBOX Partnership, the ABC has curated a selection of archival footage sourced from deep within the ABC's vaults, revealing unique insights into life in Parramatta during the 1950s and 1960s.

PARRAMATTA IN COLOUR

Parramatta was an established and bustling city centre long before it was declared “Sydney’s second CBD”. It was founded in 1788, the same year as Sydney, and is rich in historical landmarks including St John’s Cathedral, the Centennial Memorial Clock, Town Hall and Lancer Barracks. Take a little journey back in time and encounter some Paramatta’s many heritage sites that still stand today.
