Parramatta Town Hall reopens after $30 million restoration

A historic landmark in western Sydney has reopened its doors, with Parramatta Town Hall unveiling its $30 million restoration.

Built in 1883, the town hall was established as a place for community meetings, concerts and other recreational activities.

The 14-month restoration marks the final stage in the transformation of Parramatta Square. The new venue features state-of-the-art audiovisual and lighting features in the main hall, a commercial prep kitchen, a passenger lift to the upper level, and the contemporary glassed-in Southern Terrace, overlooking Parramatta Square.

“Growing up here, I have watched the city transform before my eyes, but this building has been a constant,” says City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Pierre Esber.

“I’m proud this much-loved gathering place for our community has now been restored to its former glory so it can long be a part of our future.

“Our Town Hall has seen everything, from the first performance at the venue by the Parramatta Glee Club in 1883, and the world-famous Trapp Family Singers, who inspired The Sound of Music, to serving as a backdrop for a music video for Delta Goodrem and American rapper Gizzle.

“I look forward to a new generation creating memories at Parramatta Town Hall.”
