Parramatta Park

Parramatta Park, an inner residential suburb of Cairns, is immediately west of the City centre.

Ten years after Cairns was founded a Sydney land auctioneer, John Macnamara, promoted the sale of several estates, mostly prefixed by names from Sydney or other colonial capitals. Parramatta Estate was sold in 1886 and subdivided into broad-acre allotments.
