Your place on Parkes
Live, work and play your way
Parramatta is pulsing with life, and it’s all within an easy walk from your home at Paramount on Parkes. Whether it’s a leisurely stroll to dinner, quick commute to the office or taking the kids for a run to the park – you’re surrounded by things to do, see and enjoy every day.
Shop, dine & play
Westfield Parramatta is only 600 metres away, home to leading local and international retailers and Event Cinemas. Nearby Eat Street is foodie heaven, with cult-favourites and multicultural delights available day or night. And for entertainment, choose a Parramatta Eels home game at Bankwest Stadium, a play at the Riverside Theatre or Spring Carnival at Rosehill Racecourse.
An urban playground
It’s easy to step away from the city buzz, and immerse yourself in nature. Take the family for a picnic or kick the footy in the 85 hectares of open green space that is Parramatta Park. Or head to Parramatta River for a scenic walk, jog or cycle with tracks leading as far as Sydney Olympic Park and Gladesville.
Walk to Parramatta station in 5 minutes, for regular express services to the Sydney CBD in 30 minutes and Westmead in 3 minutes. It’s a 10 minute stroll to the Parramatta Ferry wharf, buses connect to the Hills District, and the upcoming Light Rail and Metro West line will make it even easier to connect with Homebush and Westmead.
A head start
Parramatta offers endless opportunities for lifelong learning, with a wide choice of public, private, independent schools and university campuses within easy reach. This includes NSW’s first public high-rise high school Arthur Phillip High School in the CBD, the prestigious King’s School and Tara Anglican School for Girls in North Parramatta and James Ruse Agricultural School in nearby Carlingford.
A bright future
Parramatta’s $27 billion economy is the third largest in Australia, behind Sydney and Melbourne. Such a strong economy is good news for employment opportunities, with jobs growth in Parramatta outperforming the NSW average over the past three years. The Westmead Health Precinct is Parramatta’s largest employment sector, with further expansion set to come over the next 10 years.
