Celebrate over 50,000 years of culture at Burramatta NAIDOC at Parramatta River Foreshore in July.

The area of Parramatta has been occupied by the Burramattagal people, a clan of the Darug, who lived here along the upper reaches of the Parramatta River. Burramattagal is thought to be derived from the Aboriginal word for the ‘place where the eels lie down’ to breed (in the Parramatta River).

Explore your musical side with the ‘make music’ workshop led by Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE), or take part in guided Aboriginal sun spot and star gazing thanks to the Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences. There’s also great live music from hip-hop artist Radical Son and blues and roots powerhouse Krista Pay to name a couple.

Children of all ages can try their hand at Indigenous games, get creative with native flower arranging, weaving, jewellery and tool making, or enjoy stories at the Gunya tent storytime.

Enjoy free bike hire and guided bike tours along the Parramatta River thanks to Addventageous and Parramatta Heritage Rides. Tours will start at 1pm, 2.30pm and 4pm. Book HERE.

Where:     Parramatta River Foreshore, between Wilde St Bridge and Elizabeth St Footbridge Parramatta
When:       10 July 2016; 1-6pm
