For the active, Camperdown Park is the place to be, with its sporting oval, tennis and basketball courts. Next door, Camperdown Bowling Club has been transformed into a community hub, Camperdown Commons, a place where locals can relax, grab a bite to eat or participate in community workshops and classes. Towards Newtown, the historic Camperdown Memorial Park hosts the annual Newtown Festival, but on every other day, the park is popular with locals and their four-legged friends.
Bordered by Newtown and Glebe, locals have their pick of world-class dining, quirky establishments and a thriving, eclectic arts scene.

Along with the thriving student population and medical professionals there are young professionals who love the quick commute to work. Downsizers are also attracted to the area to capitalise on inner-city living.
