Eastwood

Eastwood is one of Sydney’s most colourful suburbs, located 17 kilometres from the CBD and located in the local government areas of the City of Parramatta and the City of Ryde within the Northern Suburbs region.

Europeans first settled in the area a few years after the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788., with region named by a settler from Ireland.

Today, the suburb is a bustling centre with a high population of residents of Asian descent. The latter is one of the reasons why there is a vibrant Asian culture in the suburb.

To immerse yourself in this culture, visit the Eastwood Plaza located on Rowe Street. The plaza features an outdoor dining area, several eateries as well as a fountain that is one of its focal points. Some of its favourite stores include Woolworths, OK Supermarket, as well as several homeware & gift shops.

Enjoy Asian cuisine at the Panda Garden Chinese Take Away or get some delicious sushi at The Sushi Heaven. The other option for shopping lovers is Eastwood Village, formerly known as Westfield Eastwood.

Aside from the eateries at the shopping centres, there are lots of places to enjoy an array of cuisines. These include Pho Saigon house, Ichiraku Japanese Noodle Bar as well as Poong Nab Dong Korean Restaurant for Korean cuisine. You are wondering where to get baked goodies?

Love the outdoors? Then you should certainly visit the Granny Smith Memorial Park. With shaded areas and grassy sections to put up your picnic, there is ample space for the kids to run around. The park is famous for its annual Granny Smith Festival that brings the suburb to life with stunning fairground rides, parades, fireworks and even an apple-baking contest! An optional outdoor facility one can visit with family is Jim Walsh Park.
