Bordering Parramatta River, this waterfront suburb is an urban hub with an enviable line-up of parklands and family homes. Part of Sydney’s Inner West, Five Dock has everything at its doorstep, from mouthwatering eateries to shopping destinations.
A rich Italian heritage that still resonates throughout the suburb, Five Dock is home to delicatessens, cafés and restaurants. For some seriously good home-style Italian cooking, Haberfield and Leichhardt (Sydney’s little Italy’s) are moments away. Once a year, the lively Ferragosto Festival celebrates all things Italian along Great North Road, Five Dock’s main hub.
Boasting a foreshore that extends along the Parramatta River, Five Dock forms part of the popular Bay Run, a fabulous 7 kilometre walking and cycle track around Iron Cove. Along its western foreshore, another bike and walking path extends up into neighbouring Abbotsford.
For a different pace head to Five Dock Leisure Centre and Barnwell Park Golf Course, alternatively, Five Dock Park is home to a skate park, bowling club, tennis courts, an oval, childcare facilities and an off-leash area for dogs.
The selection of Federation homes, Californian bungalows and newer apartment complexes, residents of Five Dock enjoy ample parks and foreshore access making it popular with young families.
