Parramatta, Birthplace of the Eels

Description

Parramatta was the food basket of Sydney in the early days after 1788 due to the fertile soil and connection with the first settlement in Sydney via the Parramatta River. Parramatta Football Stadium is home of the Parramatta Eels Rugby League Club. The last waypoint, Gladesville Bridge, is used as a visual reference for pilots approaching YSSY RWY 16 R from the north, which includes most inbound international traffic. The airport has curfews due to noise limits in the suburbs to the west, which somewhat limits it's efficiency.
