Cabramatta Tours

Local Studies staff have been actively promoting Council’s tourism strategy for Cabramatta by taking part in the Discover Cabramatta: a taste of Asia team. The tours are promoted to day-trippers all over Sydney and across New South Wales, as well as visitors from interstate and overseas. The Cabramatta area also fits in with the NSW school social studies and geography curriculum that explores a highly multicultural community.

Groups visit the Whitlam Library (Cabramatta) for a presentation on the history and culture of Cabramatta and viewing of The Life and Times of Fairfield City DVD that was produced by the Library in 2006. The DVD showcases the history of Fairfield City and its cultural diversity. The tour groups then continue on to visit Cabramatta’s famous fabric, tea, herbal medicine and jewellery shops – not to mention the delicious Asian cuisine at the local restaurants!

For more information about this program or to arrange a viewing of the DVD please contact our Local Studies Librarian Marilyn Gallo on (02) 9725 0347 or send a fax to (02) 9726 9687.
