Celebrate Indigenous heritage at the popular Eel Festival on Darug Country – Elizabeth Farm on Sunday 7 March. This family-friendly event celebrates Parramatta’s namesake, the eel, and its significance to the local Burramuttagal people, who would gather in autumn to trade goods and share stories and food. The day begins with a Welcome to Country and a smoking ceremony, followed by a corroboree by Nulungu Dreaming and performances by Gumaroy Newman.

Drop-in activities throughout the day including boomerang painting, weaving, and Darug language workshops, as well as a live eel display.
