No longer an up-and-coming suburb, Zetland has cemented its status as a vibrant inner-city hub. With a world-class shopping and dining precinct, brand new developments and quick access to the city, airport and parks, it’s one of the most well-connected suburbs in all of Sydney. With its leafy streets, Zetland is a real community with a neighbourly spirit that makes it feel like home.
Once Sydney’s industrial heartland, Zetland these days is an inner-city hub that offers top-notch shopping, dining, entertainment and transport. This is where the beauty of the suburb – Zetland is a stone’s throw from the city centre, airport and coastline. It’s so modern, shiny and new, that locals don’t really need to leave. Everything they need and want is right there – shops, artisan stores, markets, restaurants, cafés, cycleways and cultural destinations like the amBUSH gallery.
The facilities, along with the melting pot of singles, couples and families, make Zetland a tight-knit community that locals love being a part of. On the weekends, residents enjoy being out and about, wandering through the Joynton Park markets and East Village, soaking up the sunshine at the dog-friendly parks, and checking out shops and galleries. When it’s time to wind down, they head to restaurants or grab a drink at one of the area’s charming pubs and chic bars.
Here, there's no need for a car. Zetland is one of the most easily accessible suburbs in Sydney. Trains run regularly from Green Square Railway Station, and express bus services cater to commuters. For cyclists, the council’s new Green Square-Central Cycleway is an efficient (and scenic) way to get around.
Though there’s always something happening, the parks and quiet, leafy streets make Zetland a peaceful escape from the daily grind. Heritage terrace houses add a certain charm to the suburb while the new apartments show how far it’s come, and residents lap up the lifestyle it has to offer.
Thanks to the Green Square project, the East Village precinct and new developments, Zetland’s property market is going from strength to strength. In recent years, slick apartment complexes have been popping up all over the suburb, breathing life and energy into streets like Victoria Park Parade. Their modern amenities and proximity to the city make them a very attractive option for professionals, and they’re in high demand despite their lofty price tags. Zetland is also home to beautiful terrace houses, many of which boast high ceilings – Tilford Street is lined with them.
