Suburb Profile


Canterbury is one of the fastest growing suburbs in Sydney, offering great value for money, a good mix of cultures, easy access to the city and the Inner West whilst retaining a prime position along the Cooks River that provides ample outdoor and recreation space.

Whilst situated in the southwest, Canterbury’s access to a major train station and bus terminal means it is an easy commute to the city. Dulwich Hill, Marrickville, and Erskineville are also close by.

Along the northern bank of the Cooks River a popular cycle way connects Canterbury with Homebush to the northwest and Earlwood, Tempe and Botany Bay to the east. Tasker Park along the southern bank of the Cooks River includes playing fields, a swimming pool and ice rink. A new shopping plaza provides dining, grocery and fitness options for Canterbury locals, not to mention the area’s very own racetrack at the disposal of keen punters.

Quiet streets with older homes and public school options draw growing families by the week. Overlooking the river, boutique apartment blocks are being constructed within walking distance of transport options. There couldn’t be a more promising area for professionals entering the real estate market.
