Lifestyle

One of Sydney’s most intriguing suburbs, bohemian Marrickville simply has it all.

Marrickville’s rich diversity is celebrated throughout the community. There are mouth-watering eateries that cover the full spectrum – Asia, Europe, the Middle East, the Americas and Australia, plus a thriving art and festival scene that in many ways put Marrickville on the map – Sydney’s Fringe Festival, Art Month Sydney and the Marrickville Festival.   

Bisecting this vibrant Inner West suburb are Marrickville and Illawarra Roads, which are the centre of activity and are also known for street art created by Ces Camilleri of Creative Artistic Steel. But locals aren’t restricted to the main arteries. Marrickville has one of Sydney’s finest café scenes, including establishments that are favoured for their brew, their park-side location or their general vibe.

Well-equipped with an array of shopping options, including two Woolworths, an Aldi, an organic farmers’ market and an array of independent grocery stores, bakeries and delicatessens. When it comes to public transport, locals enjoy three train lines, multiple bus routes and quick access to Sydney’s internal and domestic airports.

Not just a place for the grown-ups, Marrickville is popular with young families – an extensive line-up of schools, playgrounds and community programs add to Marrickville’s appeal.

The Market

Whether its terraces, workmen’s cottages or post-war homes, small, single dwellings are the name of the game in Marrickville – and they’re all highly prized in this booming market. 

Apartments of all shapes, sizes and eras are in abundance too, servicing the ever expanding local population.
