If you feel a little disconnected Dulwich Hill may just be the place to plug back in. Don’t expect an anonymous world of cold corporate chain stores with automated checkouts. Hit the shops here and you will be greeted by the familiar, friendly faces of butchers, bakers and greengrocers. As you pick up some of Sydney’s best fresh food, you may also pick up a few compliments and the odd morsel of neighbourhood gossip.
Housing in Dulwich Hill comes in a wonderful variety. Choose from fine Federation homes, classic California bungalows and the art deco beauties of the Abergeldie Estate. Apartments range from simple blocks to large resort-style developments and even a stylishly converted flour mill.
The light rail runs through the centre of Dulwich Hill with four stops along the way. Dulwich Hill Station is at the south of the suburb and bus services are also plentiful. When you wish to relax you can choose from a great selection of parks, stroll along the Cooks River or tee off at Marrickville Golf Course.
