Going on a Dairy Precinct Tour is your chance to explore one of Australia’s oldest buildings, rarely seen until now. Parramatta Park Trust runs the guided tours on the second Saturday of each month at 11am and 12pm, and by appointment.

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.

Highlights of the tour include:

  • Interpretive displays recreating the life of dairy workers in the 1800s
  • Audio-visual history of World Heritage-listed Parramatta Park and the Dairy precinct
  • Artefact displays
  • Newly restored 19th century cottage gardens and sounds scapes.

Keep in Mind

  • Due to the historic nature of The Dairy Precinct, there is uneven surfaces inside the Dairy and Rangers 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.
