Ashfield

Suburb Profile

Overview

In the heart of the inner west, Ashfield is known for its vibrant multicultural community. It has beautiful parks and heritage walks – strolling the streets is like taking a walk through history. You’ll find everything from grand Victorian mansions to Art Deco homes and modern apartment complexes. Ashfield is a suburb on the brink of a boom.

Lifestyle

Ashfield has a vibrant multicultural community, and foodies refer to it as the Chinatown of the inner west. Liverpool Road is the main commercial precinct – it’s home to a slew of shops, restaurants, and grocery stores, including many Asian ones, as well as Ashfield Mall. Charlotte Street, Elizabeth Street and Parramatta Road are also hives of activity, while hubs like Five Dock, Haberfield and Croydon are close by.

The suburb’s proximity to the CBD makes it a professional hotspot, and commuting is easy. The railway station offers express trains to the city – it’s two stops to Central – and there are bus services to Burwood, Bondi Junction and Drummoyne. The airport is a 20-minute train ride away. Thanks to its community spirit and green spaces, the area also appeals to families. There are three primary schools and three high schools within its borders, and many more in neighbouring suburbs.

Ashfield promotes an active lifestyle. On any given day, locals are out and about, exercising, exploring and soaking up the sunshine in the suburb’s many parks. The sprawling Ashfield Park is a neighbourhood favourite, while Hammond Park, Rotary Park and Yeo Park are popular with families. There’s a strong cycling network, and the bike paths leading to Summer Hill and Cooks River are very popular. For water lovers, Ashfield Aquatic Centre has indoor and outdoor heated pools.

Every March, Ashfield hosts the Carnival of Cultures – a colourful event that celebrates Harmony Day and the area's multiculturalism. It brings the whole community together, and involves live music and dance performances, food and market stalls, children’s entertainment and craft workshops.

The Market

Ashfield has a range of abodes on offer, including low-rise apartments, terraces, Federation-era detached houses and grand Victorian homes that point to the suburb’s cultural heritage. The area around Ashfield Park – and in particular, Pembroke and Ormond Streets – is most desirable, thanks to its architecture, historic streets, and proximity to shopping and commercial areas.
