Dulwich Hill
Dulwich Hill 
A suburb in the process of change. Professionals are moving in to what was once traditional working class, migrant territory. 

Dulwich Hill, Sydney (inner west)

How much do you pay for a Portuguese custard tart on the lower north shore or the eastern suburbs? $3.50? Ripped off! In Dulwich Hill a piece of culinary heaven is half as cheap, and it's baked fresh on the premises. And if you like Lebanese sweets or good chorizo, Dulwich Hill again is a winner. This suburb is a kaleidoscope with professionals, families, established migrants, a handful of gays, and arty types moving in.

 

OK, so the main shopping strips on New Canterbury Rd and Marrickville Rd appear unrenovated, even downtrodden. And some look like they could do with a good wash, but in a way, that’s what makes this place interesting. Dulwich Hill is predominantly working class and multicultural. But increasingly, professionals, gays, couples, singles and young families are moving in transforming the area, gentrifying it.

 

The suburb has plenty of charming period homes - Federation, Gothic, Edwardian -  in tree lined streets, but also some unattractive 40’s and 70’s style apartment blocks in need of a serious make-over. It’s definitely a place in transition. (More information below and to your left <<< )
