The upgrade to Parramatta Wharf will help improve safety, accessibility and comfort for customers and make boarding and disembarking quicker and easier.

2017 Charles Street Square Strategy
The Charles Street Square Strategy advances the vision set out in the Parramatta City River Strategy 2015 with a plan to guide future design and development of Parramatta Quay.
It establishes an aspiration for a distinct public place that connects the Ferry Wharf with the CBD, providing a point of orientation, a site of arrival and departure, spaces for meetings and events, and a place of movement between the City and River that is equitable and legible for all visitors.
2015 Parramatta City River Strategy
The Parramatta City River Strategy is a plan for revitalising the foreshore of the Parramatta River between Gasworks Bridge and Rings Bridge, O’Connell Street.
It aims to improve connections between the river and the city and create more recreational opportunities for city residents, workers and visitors. This includes better spaces for walking, cycling and for hosting major city events by the river such as New Year’s Eve and Loy Krathong. The strategy creates a new vision for the area and reclaims the river and its foreshore as a vibrant public space for the city and its people.
