"The centre of the (inner west) action"

While it's not precisely the centre of the inner west, Camperdown manages to be close to all the reasons you moved there. Lively King St and Erskineville Rd are no more than a 10 minute walk and the more spread out, greener Leichhardt and Annandale are only a stones throw away. I've lived in Newtown and surrounds for 10 years so Camperdown was the next logical step having outgrown the desire to live in the thick of the party strip (King St, Enmore Rd). The City buses down Parramatta Rd are often a speedier option than catching one from the aforementioned streets as well.
Pros
  • Parks and reserves
  • Proximity to Newtown food, shopping and nightlife
  • Cool modern apartment living (factory and warehouse conversions)

"Convenient Camperdown"

Camperdown is a great place to live. It is covered by Marrickville and City of Sydney Councils. It is also divided by Parramatta Road. There is a great mix of Ultra Modern Apartments at Trio, Beautiful Grand Victorian Terraces and Workers Cottages. Many of the Grand Homes and Workers cottages have been renovated and restored. Great transport options, with a very good bus service from all parts as well as easy walking distance to Newtown station. Price wise it generally averages higher median prices then it's Neighbours of Erskineville, and Newtown. There are also still quite a few local pubs on the street corners. So drink and food wise great options of the local's and King Street. I purchased here around 9 years ago, and the market continues to go from strength to strength. If you can afford Camperdown, I am certain you will do well and enjoy it as much as I do!
