About the Marrickville Area

Marrickville is one of Sydney’s hippest, most sought-after postcodes, thanks to a growing number of local cafes, creative businesses and surrounding nightlife. Despite this cultural surge, the suburb has retained its quiet, neighborly vibe, making it equally popular for young creatives, professionals and families alike. Bound by the Cooks river and surrounding parklands to the south, Marrickville is hugged by the vibrant communes of Petersham, Newtown and St Peters.

Originally full of market gardens, Marrickville’s history shows it has long be a suburb of diversity, with Greek-born migrants, Vietnamese and Chinese migrants all forming large communities in the area. This has given the suburb its name as one of the best culinary centres in Sydney for Vietnamese; and today it is home to a variety of excellent eateries including Italian, Lebanese and Greek. Marrickville is also at the heart of Sydney’s cafe culture and coffee obsession, with a number of excellent establishments scattered across the area.

Marrickville is renowned for its Sunday fresh produce markets, located next to the Sydney recycle institution Reverse Garbage. Community initiatives like these, along with the various local parks give Marrickville a village feel.

For many generations the area has been home to creative industry, and still today is home to a small industrial estate in the suburbs east. Gentrification and the evolving culture of the suburb are increasingly shining through, with warehouses occupied by a variety of businesses from creative workshops to car repairs and coffee houses. This creative community has also spilled into the pubs and entertainment venues around the suburb, creating a truly vibrant community, with something for everyone to enjoy.
