Parramatta local government area
Area governed by Parramatta City Council. Created as the Municipality of Parramatta in 1861, and later amalgamated with neighbouring council areas, it stretches north, east and south of the central business district of Parramatta. Its name comes from the Burramattagal people, a clan of the Darug, who lived here along the upper reaches of the Parramatta River.
