Parramatta, Sydney, NSW, Australia
The City of Parramatta (now considered a suburb of Sydney) was originally home to the Darug people, who lived here for some 30,000 years. The name itself is a corruption of the Darug term Baramada ('head of waters' or 'the place where the eels lie down').
Europeans arrived in Jan 1788 with only enough food to last for a short time. Parramatta was established primarily as a Government Farm (it was the furthest navigable point inland on the Parramatta River) in what is now Parramatta Park.
This particular structure is the Barry Wilde Bridge, crossing the Parramatta River. Constructed 1975, named for politician Barry Charles Wilde.
In 2012 a fountain was added to the eastern side of the bridge.
