Parramatta Māori Tours
Follow the footsteps of visiting Māori Chiefs and discover Parramatta’s intriguing Māori heritage since 1805.
The tour begins where Chiefs disembarked at Parramatta Wharf. With a Māori-Koori guide, you’ll visit heritage sites including Old Government House, Kings School and St Johns Church, and see taonga (treasured objects) – pounamu (greenstone) and traditional Māori carving. You’ll get hands-on with taonga and hear surprising stories of Māori in Parramatta from 1805 to the present, where 1 in 5 Māori now live in Australia – many of them in Parramatta!
This engaging new tour is based on Black Knowledge Australia Researcher and Author, Jo Kamira’s book “Māori Trade and Relations in Parramatta”, currently being published by Parramatta City Council.
Parramatta Māori Tours take place on Dharug Country – always has been, always will be.
