"To commemorate the centenary of Armistice in 2018
This bronze statue is dedicated to the men and women of Parramatta who served our nation in the First World War
Lest we forget"
Doing my walk around Parramatta - There's a lot of on going development in the city. The tram lines is almost complete and will be operational sometime next year - The city skyline has definitely changed a lot from 1996, it was the year I settled here in Sydney, modern high rise buildings has risen along the the train station and around the CBD. A new and improved Parramatta Square ! I'm really excited for Sydney's second city :)
I was here on 23 June 2023.
Some links about Parramatta -
There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes.
