Local Tips

Australia’s first peanut butter bar is on Norton Street and Palace Norton Street is a great cinema for blockbusters and independent films.

Fun Fact

Italian nationals started settling in Leichhardt in 1917 but an influx of Italians came here after World War II.

Lifestyle

Leichhardt has established itself as one of Sydney’s most loved neighbourhoods, and is often fondly referred to as “Little Italy”. At the heart of it all is family, good food and an unbeatable European vitality.

Renowned for its hospitality, Norton Street has retained its status as the place to go to for some seriously good pasta. But Sydney’s love affair with Asian cuisine has spilled into the heart of Leichhardt – Asian infused restaurants sit side by side with restaurants that boast Nona’s secret recipes.

Lifestyle

Leichhardt is at its finest when celebrating its European heritage. Norton Street plays host to the annual Italian Festa and the Italian Film Festival; both draw large crowds. The pedestrian-only piazza at the Italian Forum is a social hub on weekends, whilst the Italian radio station, La Fiamma, keeps locals abreast of community news and events.

Pizza and cappuccinos aside, this family-friendly postcode has four primary schools and even more day care centres servicing the area – a drawcard for young families. As is the quick commute to and from the CBD – two light rail stations and a network of buses service the area.
