    Glebe, Sydney (inner west)

Rent: rents in Glebe have become more expensive

Vibe: Eclectic

Location: Parks, Inner city, Near Uni of Sydney/UTS

If you want to taste cuisine of the world but can’t afford the airfare, then bus it to Glebe Point Rd in Glebe. Roughly a 10-minute walk from Central Station, Glebe has plenty of cafes, restaurants, and good pubs. It is very convenient, has great access to public transport and is a book and therapy mecca. Glebe is also a magnet for students, the herbal and left-wing sets, backpackers and yuppies. It has a weekly flea market which captures Glebe's alternative bent, it is well known for its Victorian terraces, but also has many ugly 1970's flats, and public housing.

Every Saturday, the local school on Glebe Point Road hosts a second-hand market which is popular with those out for a bargain, or on the lookout for something different. But if all this isn’t your scene, you can check out the nearby large shopping complex, Broadway. Or go to the very end of Glebe Point Rd to Bicentennial Park for a casual stroll, a power walk, a game of soccer, cricket, a bbq with friends, or find a quiet spot to read a book. And the backdrop for all this? Sydney Harbour and Anzac Bridge. The park is also the venue for the annual Glebe Street Fair.

Parking can be hard and there are plenty of parking meters waiting to take your money. The vibe: eclectic. Shoe equivalent: Birkenstocks, Campers. Would suit: ages 18+, students, creative professionals, singles, gays/lesbians, families, long-term travellers. Location: inner city. Postcode: 2037. Distance from city: 3km. Direction: West .

Sydney Inner West Print E-mail


A great suburb close to the city centre. Because of its location, wide tree lined streets and architecture, Annandale is quintessentially Victorian era Sydney with a Gothic twist and a high price tag. More >>


Ashfield is family territory and the Chinatown of the inner West. It’s quite multicultural with a mixture of working and middle class residents. More >>


Bingo! Balmain is one of the best suburbs to live in Sydney. It has character, views, an interesting history, is cosmopolitan, but best of all, it has a great community spirit and plenty of good pubs. More >>


There is definitely a buzz in Burwood with everyday people getting on with things in a pleasant, clean, environment. More >>


Don’t let Victoria Rd put you off. Yeah, the traffic is VERY loud, but go just one street back and you enter a world of larger period homes, trees, water views, and chirping birds. More >>


How much do you pay for a Portuguese custard tart on the lower north shore or the eastern suburbs? $3? $3.50? Ripped off a beauty! In Dulwich Hill a piece of culinary heaven will set you back around $1.40. More >>


Is an "alternative" oasis in Australia's glitziest city. More >>


Five Dock is fab. It's like being in an Italian village. This is an unpretentious corner of Sydney that is filled with Italian delis, cafes and butchers. More >>


If you want to taste cuisine of the world but can’t afford the airfare, then bus it to Glebe Point Rd. Here you will find food from all over the world. More >>


Welcome to Italy. Walk down Ramsay St on a Saturday morning and you'll feel like you've gone through a time warp and entered 1950's Italy. More >>


Cappuccino, pizza, gelati and some good looking waiters. Si Si. Liechhardt is Sydney’s Italian fix and Haberfield on steroids. More >>


Marrickville is a multicultural melting pot that's becoming groovy. It used to have a large Greek community, but now the Asian influence is much stronger. More >>


Put on your sneakers and get lost in Newtown. Newtown is the grunge capital of Sydney, where shopping and eating out is big, and where the mainstream is almost nowhere to be seen. More >>


Once an industrial zone bereft of almost any residential life, Pyrmont has become a high-rise apartment mecca popular with young professionals on the way up. More >>


This is the upmarket organic hub of Sydney. It’s got some great cafes, restaurants and shops, a weekly second hand market, a good community feel and lots of Victorian era workers’ cottages. More >>


Once upon a time there were small, very basic, functional shops that catered for the working and lower middle classes. Then new people began moving in - professionals, singles, gays, refugees from the over priced eastern suburbs. And suddenly Summer Hill became groovy in an understated kind of way. More >>
