Zetland

Suburb Profile

No longer an up-and-coming suburb, Zetland has cemented its status as a vibrant inner-city hub. With a world-class shopping and dining precinct, brand new developments and quick access to the city, airport and parks, it’s one of the most well-connected suburbs in all of Sydney. With its leafy streets, Zetland is a real community with a neighbourly spirit that makes it feel like home. 

Thanks to the Green Square project, the East Village precinct and new developments, Zetland’s property market is going from strength to strength. In recent years, slick apartment complexes have been popping up all over the suburb, breathing life and energy into streets like Victoria Park Parade. Their modern amenities and proximity to the city make them a very attractive option for professionals, and they’re in high demand despite their lofty price tags. Zetland is also home to beautiful terrace houses, many of which boast high ceilings – Tilford Street is lined with them.

Once Sydney’s industrial heartland, Zetland these days is an inner-city hub that offers top-notch shopping, dining, entertainment and transport. This is where the beauty of the suburb – Zetland is a stone’s throw from the city centre, airport and coastline. It’s so modern, shiny and new, that locals don’t really need to leave. Everything they need and want is right there – shops, artisan stores, markets, restaurants, cafés, cycleways and cultural destinations like the amBUSH gallery.

With its mod cons, beautiful parks, and inner-city location, Zetland is the perfect retreat for professionals and they’re splashing their cash on apartments and terraces around the area. There’s a good mix of singles, students, young couples and older couples, which adds to the hub’s vibrancy and diversity. More and more families are moving in, taking advantage of Zetland’s proximity to just about everything and strengthening the community vibe the suburb is becoming famous for.

aking pointers from New York’s Chelsea Market, East Village has supermarkets, health clubs, medical centres, restaurants and artisan stores all under one (very modern) roof. Locals don’t know how they ever lived without the marketplace – everything they need and want is at their fingertips, and there’s always something going on.
