Pubs of Parramatta

Wander through the streets of the Parramatta CBD discovering the locations and stories behind 12 of the earliest hotels in NSW.

Following your expert guide you will learn where the first beer was sold in Parramatta, which pot house was visited by Charles Darwin in 1836, how St John’s Church is connected to the Strong Man Inn, what a ‘Multum in Parvo’ might be, who said ‘selling beer to thirsty men is no way to make a living’ and why the death of Lady Mary Fitzroy caused havoc at the Tattersall’s Pub. Visit the magnificent archaeological diggings of the former Wheatsheath Hotel which are located under a modern high-rise tower in the heart of the CBD. See and hear what the future holds for one of the oldest hotel sites in Parramatta – and much more.
