Parramatta Children's Court
This archaeological site on corner of George & O'Connell Streets, Lots 102 and 103 of the 1823 town plan, was associated with early Parramatta residents, including:
The Parramatta Children's Court site is the first archaeological site in Parramatta where the archaeological remains of two convict hut/houses are conserved in situ under the new court building and the O'Connell Street footpath and are therefore protected in perpetuity. This outcome was achieved by negotiations between the Heritage Office, the Attorney-General's Office and the Government Architect's Office, Department of Commerce.
The Parramatta Children's Court Site, is part of the Parramatta Justice Precinct. Our client on this site was the NSW Department of Commerce, for the NSW Attorney-General's Office.
