History Edit

Aboriginal cultureEdit

The Darug people had lived in the area for many generations, and regarded the area as a food bowl, rich in food from the river and forests. They called the area Baramada or Burramatta ('Parramatta') which means "the place where the eels lie down"[1].

LandmarksEdit

North Parramatta is dominated by Lake Parramatta and The King's School, which together comprise almost 50% of the land area.
