Parramatta Heritage Centre
Lennox Bridge was built by convicts between 1836 and 1839 and is the site of the Parramatta Heritage Centre, which is an interesting insight into the city's past. There are permanent displays and exhibitions at the center and these are often supported by themed talks and children's activities to help pass on the stories of the past to future generations. There are extensive research facilities available and the connected library stays open until 8pm on Thursday to help facilitate enquiring minds. Admission is free.
I havent actually been to the Parramatta Heritage Centre nor have I been to Australia as yet but on asking them for help with family history I was both surprised and delighted when an envelope dropped through my door with various bits of infomation and although it didnt relate directly to what I was looking for I was so impressed that the lady ie Lynda Muggridge had gone to so much trouble for a complete stranger to her shores. Maybe one day I will be able to visit who knows? Please pass on my grateful thanks to her on my behalf.
