Dairy Precinct Tour, Parramatta Park

Dairy Precinct Tour, Parramatta Park
12/05/2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Parramatta Heritage and Visitor Information Centre, in conjunction with Parramatta Park Trust, runs regular guided tours of the Dairy Precinct on the second Saturday of each month at 11am and 12pm, and by appointment. Tours cost $12 and must be purchased through Eventbrite.

This is your chance to uncover and explore one of Australia’s oldest buildings. Take an exclusive and private tour at the Dairy Precinct in Parramatta Park and uncover the fascinating stories and historical, social and architectural importance to Australia.

Shortly after the arrival of colonists in 1788, the Europeans recognised the fertile site’s potential for growing crops to feed the starving colony.

Built in 1796, the Dairy Cottage was home to George Salter, an ex-convict turned cattleman. It later became part of Governor Macquarie’s Domain, now on the World Heritage list.

In the early 1800s, the cottage was enlarged and converted to a dairy with a sunken milk-processing room constructed alongside. The milk room still remains today and can be viewed beneath the adjacent Ranger’s Cottage.

You will be able to see Parramatta Park story unfold in a brand-new audio-visual exhibition inside these two important historic buildings.

It’s a fascinating glimpse into our colonial past and Parramatta’s significant Aboriginal history.

Due to the historic nature of The Dairy Precinct and fragile nature of the buildings, entry to the cottages is limited to small groups of no more than 15 at a time. There are also uneven surfaces inside the cottages and surrounding gardens, paths and entries that may cause trips, slips or falls.

A number of areas in the Dairy Precinct have limited accessibility. If you have special access requirements, please contact the Parramatta Heritage and Visitor Information Centre on 02 8839 3311.

Paddy's Night Food Markets, Flemington

Paddy's Night Food Markets, Flemington
12/05/2018 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm

One of Sydney’s best fresh food markets, Paddy’s Markets in Flemington, is taking its show into the night, bringing together some of the city’s best food trucks for a new weekly night food market. Starting July 1, the massive car park venue will be transformed into a bustling eatery for street food lovers every Saturday night from 6.30–10.30pm.

Over 25 of Sydney’s veteran and up-and-comers in the food truck scene will converge on the car park, including Chur Burger, Kayter Co., Maverick Wings and Dirty Bird. Sit at one of the converted crate tables and tuck into delights such as gelato brioche, chocolate gözleme and soda served out of lightbulbs. Menus will change regularly to match a monthly theme, so you can constantly change it up — even if you visit the same food vendor.

Entry is free — as are the retro arcade games, including Daytona and Pac-Man — and there will be regular live music by resident DJ Mike Hyper and special guests. Free parking is also available on-site.

Adult Glee Club - Weekly Singing Group, GORDON

Adult Glee Club - Weekly Singing Group, GORDON
15/05/2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Do you enjoy singing? Or are you interested in trying a new activity that sees you do more than just shower singing and carpool karaoke?

Come and join this growing group of diverse adults who come together to sing various well-known songs while having a good time. Our Gordon based Adult Glee Club has mums from the Ryde and Northern Districts areas participating, and we’re always on the look out for new members to join our weekly singing group. Expect to sing anything from pop to rock, musical theatre, golden oldies and event the odd current hit.

There’s no auditions, no experience needed. Just a willingness to give it a try and have a good time while doing so. It’s so healthy for the body and mind to sing regularly and lowers stress levels and anxiety. The people are welcoming and if you’ve never sung in a choir or group before, don’t be scared. Our choir directors are very welcoming and will ensure you improve over time (even if you think you can’t).
