Walk through Cabramatta's rich history

There are few places that have a more vibrant, intriguing, diverse and fascinating history than Cabramatta and residents and visitors can take a walk through Cabramatta's wonderful story with the public artwork, Unfold, at Gough Whitlam Place in Dutton Pl

The area's rich and dynamic multiculturalism over the years is depicted in an impressive six-metre long and two-metre high wall.

Unfold is the story of Cabramatta and its people and comprises photos that chart the long  history of the area: from the Cabrogal people more than 30,000 years ago, to European settlement and more recent waves of migration.

Cabramatta played a vital role for many migrants that built this City. For many migrants after World War II, their first homes and first friends were made at the hostels in Cabramatta. 

Unfold is not only the history of Cabramatta but the people who came, worked hard and changed this City.

The wall notes and shows key events in the growth of Cabramatta and includes quotes from residents about their thoughts and memories of Cabramatta.

Take the opportunity to view Unfold, the history of Cabramatta that has such a strong link to the people who still live here. It is a fascinating look at the events that make Cabramatta what it is today and is sure to surprise with facts and images that you haven't come across before.

There are many things happening in Cabramatta with the Dutton Lane centre development and refurbishment of the City Centre with new seats, lighting and landscaping. 

Cabramatta is always on the move and that continues, so Unfold is an opportunity to take a break and reflect on its history.
