Event description

Description

This is your chance to explore one of Australia’s oldest buildings, rarely seen until now.

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 Trust on 02 98957500 prior to booking.

Please note there are no amenities at the Dairy Precinct; the nearest facilities are located at Coleman Oval.
