Sydenham is an inner west suburb of Sydney. Located about 8 kilometres south of the CBD it is in the local government area of Marrickville Council.

Getting there and getting around

Sydenham Station is a major train station on three Sydney Trains Network lines: Bankstown, Airport, Inner West & South and the Illawarra Lines. The area is also serviced by a number of buses including MetroBus M30, and Sydney Buses routes 357, 418 and 425.

Lifestyle and population

Parts of Sydenham lie directly under the Sydney Airport flight path. For this reason the government converted the bulk of the affected area into an open recreational park (rather than residential area) called Sydenham Green. Other than this, the suburb has a mix of commercial, residential and industrial development areas.

The population of Sydenham is just over 1,000. There is a mix of cultural backgrounds, with just over 50% of residents born in Australia and other countries of birth including China (nearly 5%), Thailand (about 4%), Vietnam (just under 4%) and Greece (3.4%). The spread of household demographic types is quite even, with about 26% being couples without children, 23% couples with children, 16% group households and 13% sole occupancy.

Property trends and opportunities

About 40% of Sydenham residents are in the process of buying their homes, with 27% owning outright and about 26% renting.
