Sydenham - Postcode 2044
Sydenham is a suburb in the Inner West of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Sydenham is located 8 kilometers south of Sydney central business district and is part of the local government area of Inner West Council. Sydenham is surrounded by the suburbs of Marrickville, St Peters and Tempe.
The suburb suffers from aircraft noise because it is directly under the flight path of Sydney Airport. To alleviate resident noise complaints, many of the residential properties between Unwins Bridge Road and the Princes Highway were bought by the government and converted into a recreational park, which was named Sydenham Green after the park in London. Two heritage buildings remain standing along Railway Road: St Marys Church and a sandstone terrace. A series of oversized 'living room' sculptures - lamp, chairs and fireplace pays homage to the residential houses that formerly occupied the site.
Sydenham Green is your go to park in Sydenham, located on Unwins Bridge road directly opposite the library. The green has an enclosed children’s playground and a fantastic off leash dog area that is fully fenced. The green has a full basketball court and plans are in the works for a skate park in 2017 and a community garden.
Sydenham railway station is located on the Illawarra line, serving the Sydney suburb of Sydenham. It is served by Sydney Trains T2 South, T3 Bankstown and T4 Illawarra services. Trains are frequent, a trip to Central takes 8min!
