About Hurlstone Park
Hurlstone Park is a unique family-friendly neighbourhood located between the vibrant cultural hubs of Newtown and Leichardt, and the green belt of Cooks River and the southern suburbs beyond. Hurlstone Park is a peaceful suburb where the streets are lined with large trees, double fronted Federation homes and back gardens with garages, rare in the urban Inner West.
The area is situated on the arterial Canterbury Road, meaning direct access to the airport, the Hume Highway leading south, and the western suburbs. The South West trainline and local and main bus routes service the area, making the short commute into the CBD or other hubs fairly quick and easy. The industrial estates of Marrickville, Sydenham and Tempe are also easily accessible.
Hurlstone Park has all of the major amenities needed, including supermarkets, restaurants, coffee shops, parks and excellent state and private primary and secondary schools. Cooks River is directly to the south of the suburb, home to peaceful nature reserves, cycling paths, sports fields and a golf club.
A stone’s throw from the quiet streets of Hurlstone Park is the vibrant cafe culture, nightlife and creative industries in Petersham, Marrickville, Newtown and Erskineville. And all this is just 9km from the Sydney CBD.
