Strathfield, a culturally diverse urban hub

A place where families busily go about their day, Strathfield in Sydney’s Inner West is quintessentially urban. Boasting picturesque boulevards, schools aplenty and a strong Korean dining scene, it is no wonder Strathfield is a suburb where families go to lay down roots.
Strathfield has long been one of the Inner West’s most sought-after suburbs, thanks in part to its major train station connecting commuters to Sydney’s CBD within 20 minutes, useful shopping precinct and several of the district’s best schools (Santa Sabina College, St Patrick’s College and the Australian Catholic University). Strathfield also has easy access to major transport thoroughfares, and has a line-up of charming boulevards and green open spaces.
With locals hailing from just about every corner of the globe, Strathfield has a proud multicultural atmosphere. From non-descript eateries to established restaurants, Strathfield Plaza and surrounding streets are home to a diverse dining scene rich with flavours, think Bar Biscotti and Ymone Haejanggook. And to the delight of the wider Sydney community, there is a spotlight on Korean fare.
Food aside, Strathfield Plaza has all the amenities needed each day, while nearby Burwood and Homebush have major shopping outlets – Westfields, DFO Homebush, Sydney Produce Markets and the Sydney Flower Market. The sprawling grounds of Olympic Park are close at hand and Strathfield has its own fair share of beautiful parklands with Strathfield Park and its multiuse sports and picnic facilities a local favourite
Beautiful yet urban, much of Strathfield’s housing around the train station and shopping precincts is made up of towering apartment blocks and older ungalows, while plenty of luxurious multi-million-dollar homes on wide-open avenues can be found in other quarters of the suburb.
In fact, the area flanked by Homebush Road, the Boulevarde, Carrington Street and Hunter Street has such a high concentration of exquisite multi-million-dollar mansions it’s been named ‘The Golden Mile’.
If you want a comfortable lifestyle in a convenient location with a community atmosphere, Strathfield certainly ticks all the right boxes.
