The residents of Burwood, in Sydney’s inner west, hail from over one hundred countries, making it one of the most diverse, exciting, and multicultural suburbs in not only Sydney, but the entire country.
One of the area’s historic sights is the Enfield Aquatic Centre, home to the first Commonwealth pool to comply with Olympic standards. The centre currently has three pools, including indoor and therapy pools, with plans afoot for a major development which includes year-round heating for the outdoor pool, a leisure centre and a cafe.
Burwood has many green spaces, but perhaps the most exciting recent development in the area was the establishment of Burwood Chinatown. Burwood’s Chinatown is a bustling, multi-level food precinct serving up authentic Asian street food. Visitors can expect over thirty-five hawker-style stalls, where food is cooked before your very eyes. Neon-lit, it’s like all your favourite Asian food markets, rolled into one!
If you’re an out-of-towner, or looking for a stay-cation, the Crowne Plaza Sydney Burwood is stylish, welcoming, and right in the heart of the action. This modern, contemporary business hotel has many features and facilities, including the Skybar Restiarant and Lounge- with 360 degree views out over the city and beyond- and some of the finest steaks in the west at Onyx restaurant. This is the perfect base for a weekend in Burwood.
