Marrickville

A vibrant culturally-diverse community full of surprises.

Marrickville is located 7km south-west of the Sydney CBD. 

Marrickville sits on the northern bank of the Cooks River, opposite Earlwood and shares borders with Stanmore, Enmore, Newtown, St Peters, Sydenham, Tempe, Dulwich Hill, Hurlstone Park and Petersham.

The name Marrickville comes from the 24.3 ha (60 acres) ‘Marrick’ estate of Thomas Chalder, which was subdivided on 24 February 1855. He named it after his native village Marrick, North Yorkshire, England.

Artistic, relaxed and diverse, Marrickville is an Inner West treasure, home to people of all ages and varied cultural backgrounds.

Home to the pleasant Enmore Park, famous for being family, dog, scooter and festival friendly. Inside the park is Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre, popular with young families.
