Artistic, bohemian and diverse, Marrickville is a jewel in Sydney’s inner-west, playing home to people of all ages and varied cultural backgrounds.
You’d also be hard pressed to think of something you need that can’t be bought here. There are two Woolworths supermarkets and an Aldi to shop for essentials, as well as countless butchers, bakers and grocery stores. Specialty stores may actually be Marrickville’s specialty because they’re here in volumes. Of course, it would be remiss not to mention the Marrickville Organic Food and Farmers’ Markets – held every Sunday at the Addison Community Centre. When locals look to eat out they have many excellent options with Japanese, Vietnamese, Greek, Italian, Spanish, Modern Australian and so many more to select from. Worth noting however is that this suburb is in the flight path for Sydney Airport, which does have a curfew, but planes can sometimes interrupt conversations.
Why have just one train station when you can have three? Yes, Marrickville residents enjoy three train stations including the junction that is Sydenham. If that weren’t enough, Marrickville also boasts multiple bus services that serve every main road in the suburb. With just 5km between Marrickville and Sydney Airport, it’s clear this suburb has transport covered.
No matter your age, what language you speak or your life stage, you’re not just welcome but well catered for in Marrickville. In this suburb, homes are varied, shopping is prolific, infrastructure is ideal and schools are abundant. Together with excellent recreational and entertainment options this suburb belongs on every house-hunter’s list.
