Leichhardt is a thriving community in the heart of Sydney’s Inner West. Often referred to as “Sydney’s Little Italy,” the suburb is slowly evolving from its recent migrant past whilst still retaining a distinctly cosmopolitan flavour.
The Italian theme can be experienced at a number of cafes and eateries that line Norton Street from the intersection with Parramatta Road in the south towards the City West Link to the north. Some of the most well known include Bar Sport and Bar Italia. The Italian Forum which is accessed towards the southern end of Norton Street was designed to recreate the feel of a medieval Italian Piazza.
Norton Street also contains a number of hotels, a Palace Cinema and the Norton Plaza shopping centre. A further shopping centre known as Marketplace Leichhardt is located at the intersection of Flood and Marion Streets.
Leichhardt is well serviced by Sydney buses whilst the Light Rail extension will include no fewer than 4 stations in Leichhardt. These are Leichhardt North, Hawthorne, Marion and Taverners Hill. The suburb is easily accessible by road with both Parramatta Road and the City West Link providing convenient routes to the rest of the City. Leichhardt contains a variety of parks and open spaces whilst it is also close to the popular Bay Run providing entry to a number of recreational activities along the foreshore of Iron Cove.
Due to its convenient location and variety of diverse recreational and lifestyle options, Leichhardt is a popular suburb that has recently experienced significant capital growth. The most desirable streets include Marlborough, Carlisle, Day and Cary.
