Stanmore is located 5 kilometres south-west of the CBD in Sydney’s eclectic Inner West. Stanmore train station offers quick access to the city as well as the North Shore, Western Sydney, Eastern beaches via Bondi Junction and the airport via Central Station. Busses also service the suburb and travel east, west and south.
Stanmore was established as a residential area in the late 1800’s following the construction of the train line. Many of the Victorian mansions and terraces remain today due to their heritage listing. Many federation bungalows and Edwardian houses were also constructed later on and more recently modern apartment complexes have started popping up and industrial buildings have been converted into trendy apartments as the area becomes increasingly popular due to its proximity to the CBD and good access to public transport.
The local is the Salisbury Hotel, which is understood to have sold recently to publican Gerard Dore, who plans to bring the pub up to the level of other pubs he operates such as Beach Road in Bondi and Tilbury Hotel in Woolloomooloo. There are a variety of shops and popular cafés near the pub and along Percival Road as well as along Parramatta Road and its surrounding streets. Norton Street cafés, restaurants and shops including the Palace cinema are also within easy walking distance for northern Stanmore residents. Stanmore Plaza is near the station and contains IGA supermarket, however Norton Plaza, MarketPlace Leichhardt and Marrickville Metro Shopping Centre offer a wider range of shops if you can’t find what you’re after locally.
Stanmore Public School and St Michael’s Primary School are the local primary schools whilst Newington College caters for boys from kindergarten to year 12. Independent or Catholic schools in the vicinity include The Athena School (K-10) in Newtown, Christian Brothers School (5-12 boys) and The John Berne School (specialist 7-10) in Lewisham and Casimir Catholic College (7-12) in Marrickville.
There are several parks in Stanmore which are perfect for a picnic on a sunny day. There are also a number of gyms and pools nearby including Leichhardt Aquatic and Fitness Centre, Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre and Fanny Durack Aquatic Centre.
Stanmore’s proximity to the CBD and its own rail station are key draw cards for the suburb. Schools such as Newington College and the Inner West café culture also appeal to many people.
