An up-and-coming inner-west gem, Petersham gives locals the best of both worlds. It’s just six kilometres from the CBD and close to Leichhardt, Dulwich Hill, Newtown and Marrickville. Petersham is a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities, all of which bring a sense of community and energy to the area. While there are plenty of retirees who have called the suburb home for decades, in recent years, more young professionals, couples and families have moved in. It seems to be the kind of place where everyone has an interesting story.



There are also bus stops on the main streets, many of which offer express services during peak times. The 428, 444, 445 and 412 buses run through Petersham at different points.

The railway station is a few minutes’ walk from the centre of the suburb, and trains operate on the Airport, Inner West, South, City Circle and Homebush lines.
