CAMWEST launches Heritage website!

CAMWEST has launched its Parramatta Heritage Ride website, you can find it at http://camwest.pps.com.au/heritage/. The site provides descriptions and photos of a number of heritage sites around the area, and it highlights the wonderful historical heritage around Parramatta, truly a 'living museum'. Users can also download a self-guided printable brochure and map that you can take on the suggested route.

2004 Ride Report

About 26 people turned up for the ride, including about six children and a star appearance of Gabrielle Kuiper, President of Bicycle NSW! Weather was perfect - sunny and cool but not cold. It covered an easy 16km at a leisurely pace, with CAMWEST member and Parramatta history fan Paul Bowyer as our guide. We started off from Tudor Gates, Parramatta Park, up past Old Govt House and then to Dairy Precinct. From there we visited the Female Orphan School, Experiment Farm, Hambledon Cottage, and finished at St John's Church in the Mall. Most then adjourned to Delifrance for coffee. This ride will next be run in May 2005. Look out for our self-guided tour guide (downloadable) and web tour - coming up!
