About Alexandria

Vibrant neighbourhood with an intriguing edge

Alexandria was once the largest industrial area in Australia, with 550 factories. Once brimming with industry and warehouses, Alexandria was the epitome of the inner-city industrial suburb. Now she’s switching gears, and this vibrant neighbourhood is becoming one of Sydney’s hottest addresses for creatives and affluent investors.  

Sydneysiders are swarming to Alexandria for its vibrant café culture and mouth-watering bakeries, with the Grounds of Alexandria at the helm.

Also in this dynamic neighbourhood are sporting complexes where you can get your heart rate pumping at indoor rock climbing or trampoline centres.

Sydney Park on Alexandria’s western edge is a much-loved green space. It’s popular for its off-leash dog area, multiple playgrounds and cycle paths, which connect to cycle ways throughout Alexandria and beyond to neighbouring suburbs and Sydney’s CBD.

Amidst all this are quiet, tree-lined streets which boast charming Victorian and Art Deco style homes and cottages. Combined with the warehouses that are being converted into private residences and shopfronts you have one funky inner-city suburb.

Alexandria is fast becoming a dynamic and vibrant neighbourhood with an intriguing edge
