Lifestyle

Ashfield has a vibrant multicultural community, and foodies refer to it as the Chinatown of the inner west. Liverpool Road is the main commercial precinct – it’s home to a slew of shops, restaurants, and grocery stores, including many Asian ones, as well as Ashfield Mall. Charlotte Street, Elizabeth Street and Parramatta Road are also hives of activity, while hubs like Five Dock, Haberfield and Croydon are close by.

Lifestyle

The suburb’s proximity to the CBD makes it a professional hotspot, and commuting is easy. The railway station offers express trains to the city – it’s two stops to Central – and there are bus services to Burwood, Bondi Junction and Drummoyne. The airport is a 20-minute train ride away. Thanks to its community spirit and green spaces, the area also appeals to families. There are three primary schools and three high schools within its borders, and many more in neighbouring suburbs.

Ashfield promotes an active lifestyle. On any given day, locals are out and about, exercising, exploring and soaking up the sunshine in the suburb’s many parks. The sprawling Ashfield Park is a neighbourhood favourite, while Hammond Park, Rotary Park and Yeo Park are popular with families. There’s a strong cycling network, and the bike paths leading to Summer Hill and Cooks River are very popular. For water lovers, Ashfield Aquatic Centre has indoor and outdoor heated pools.

Every March, Ashfield hosts the Carnival of Cultures – a colourful event that celebrates Harmony Day and the area's multiculturalism. It brings the whole community together, and involves live music and dance performances, food and market stalls, children’s entertainment and craft workshops.

Area Features

ASHFIELD PARK

Set across six hectares, Ashfield Park is a local hub in its own right. The expansive park is beautifully landscaped, and boasts a bowling club, sporting oval, gardens, BBQ facilities, shaded areas, and a playground that caters to children of all ages.

HERITAGE WALKS

The Inner-West Council has created four self-guided heritage walks that take locals and visitors through the history of the area. Each walk is about two hours in length, and gives an insight into the suburb’s fascinating past and the characters who have called it home over the years.

ASHFIELD MALL

Ashfield Mall offers residents all their shopping and service needs under the one roof. It has three major supermarkets, a department store and specialty shops.

Property

Ashfield has a range of abodes on offer, including low-rise apartments, terraces, Federation-era detached houses and grand Victorian homes that point to the suburb’s cultural heritage. The area around Ashfield Park – and in particular, Pembroke and Ormond Streets – is most desirable, thanks to its architecture, historic streets, and proximity to shopping and commercial areas.
