On this two hour walking tour you will further develop the understanding of the significance of Parramatta in the story of first contact between the local Aboriginal people and the colonists. Learn how the Governors of the time reacted to Aboriginal complaints, how Aboriginal children were taken into the Native Institute and how the colonisation forced the Aboriginal people from their land. There were friendships and trades that developed but also fierce uprisings and dispossession, which deprived the local Aboriginal community of their gathering place, their food supply and their land.
