  • River has brownish hue. Lots of floating rubbish carried by waters that should have been a jewel of Western Sydney  more »
  • Visited on Tuesday 12th November. We took a ferry from Circular Quay to Parramatta and this is definately the best way to see and enjoy the Parramatta River.  more »

  • The riverfront at Parramatta is a great place for a walk, run or other forms of exercise. The stairs on the northern side nearest the Ferry Terminal are great to run up and down and you can run around the block and back along the river to mix it up. From the riverfront you can run west to Parramatta Park and do the 3.1km loop or shorter variations before heading back. You can head east past the ferry terminal and over the Gas Works Bridge and follow the north side of the river connecting to the cycleway network along the river.
  • Great bike tracks along the Newington Armory side.
