Abstract (in English)

Parramatta was settled soon after the arrival of the first European settlement/invasion of Sydney, and was important as both a gaol town and an agricultural centre for the infant colony. Since before the arrival of European colonists, the Parramatta landscape has been used by people for a wide range of activities. Today, Parramatta City boasts a rich archaeological heritage. Located approximately 30km inland, upriver, from the main City of Sydney, the area of Parramatta was established as a government farm then government town during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, developing as a place of both industry, and then later, suburban expansion during the twentieth century.
