Parramatta is often overlooked as a holiday destination, but there is so much more here than meets the eye. If you're heading to NSW as part of your summer holiday, make sure you stop by this sunny spot.

Where to stay

Book in your holiday accommodation before you hit the road so that you can arrive and settle in straight away. Mantra Parramatta is the perfect place for you and your family to base yourselves for your getaway, as it's conveniently located near ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic park and Parramatta's bustling retail centre. Take a dip in the heated outdoor swimming pool or work out at the onsite gymnasium before settling in at the bar.
