Harris Park is a thriving, dynamic, multicultural hub known for its blend of cultures and large Indian population. Sometimes referred to as ‘Little India’, Wigram, Marion and Station Streets in Harris Park are home to more than 20 eateries, a variety of shops selling colourful saris, glittering arm bangles and Indian spices that will transport you straight to Mumbai.

Harris Park is identified as one of 5 key visitor precincts in Council's Destination Management Plan (DMP). The aim of the DMP is to build and communicate successful and sustainable destinations for visitors by providing attractive and unique experiences, whilst balancing the needs of the local community.

Community consultation - What we heard?

Council sought feedback on a proposal to promote Harris Park as ‘Little India’ and on ways to further enhance Harris Park as a unique location for food and shopping.

Consultation with local businesses, residents and broader community showed that more than 80% supported the use of the name ‘Little India’ to promote Harris Park.

Thank you for your interest and feedback.

May 2023 - Project update

The City of Parramatta is engaging closely with the community and other stakeholders on next steps for the ‘Little India’ precinct with the goal of making it a national and international destination.

The Wigram Street, Marion Street and Station Street East area is already known by many in our community as ‘Little India’ and Council is progressing options to recognise its growing importance as a precinct within our City.
