Bridges and Boundary Stones Ride - 13 Sep 2015

In 1839, Governor George Gipps directed that Parramatta's boundaries be
marked out. David Lennox, famed bridge builder, was commissioned to design
the 9 stones. 6 of these stones can still be seen today.

The Bridges and Boundary Stones ride will take you to the old boundary
stones as it tours the old boundaries, some of Parramatta's great bridges,
and around Australia's oldest buildings, including Elizabeth Farm, Old
Government House, Hambledon Cottage and the Female Factory Precinct. And
it's free! 

Come along and get acquainted with the fabulous history of this fabulous
city. The ride departs from the Tudor Gatehouse, Parramatta Park at 8.30.
