Parramatta & Sydney Attractions
Parramatta has it all: great shopping, beautiful sprawling parklands, colonial heritage sites and all just a short train ride from the centre of Sydney. Below are just a handful of the great places to visit during your stay at Fiori Parramatta accommodation.
There is evidence of Parramatta’s colonial past to be found all over the city, from protected parkland to churches, monuments and buildings that date back to the 1700s and 1800s. A good overview of the city’s unique cultural identity can be found at the Heritage Centre, where you can book a tour, listen to a presentation by a local historian and enjoy a range of exhibitions that bring Parramatta’s fascinating stories to life. A trip to the Heritage Centre is an excellent starting point for a day exploring the city’s most iconic heritage sites, which include Elizabeth Farm, the Hambledon Cottage and St John’s Cathedral.
Parks and Natural Attractions
Find refuge from the fast-pace of the city in one of the beautiful parklands and bushland reserves in and around the Parramatta CBD. The Lake Parramatta Reserve, just 2km from our apartments Parramatta Sydney, offers 60 hectares of lush bushland, teeming with native plant, bird and animal life. The popular Parramatta Park, not far from Fiori Apartments, is the local’s favourite place to stroll, picnic, cycle and unwind just a stone’s throw from the city’s main business district.
