This multicache begins at the start of the Riverside Trail, which runs along the northside of the Parramatta River. The 800 metre path features the work of Aboriginal artist Jamie Eastwood and depicts Aboriginal history from the early beginnings to the arrival of the First Fleet and beyond. Each colour represents a chapter and interpretive signs explain history.
