North Parramatta Name Origin
North Parramatta is named for the area north of Parramatta, which is named from an Aboriginal word meaning "the place where eels lie down".
North Parramatta Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the late 1700s, with land used mainly for farming. The Parramatta Correctional Centre (originally Parramatta Gaol) operated in the area between 1798 and 2011. Population was minimal until the 1850s, aided by the construction of Lake Parramatta. Growth took place from the 1880s into the early 1900s. The most significant development occurred during the post-war years. The population increased significantly from the early 1990s as new dwellings were added to the area, largely from medium and high density housing. Growth is expected to continue, particularly from the Parramatta North Urban Transformation Program.
