Summary Of  Redfern

The suburb of Redfern is a paradox of charm and grit. As an up-and-coming area in Sydney, Redfern is only a 15-minute walk from the CBD.

Redfern’s biggest strength is its upbeat and active busy streets, treating locals to the modern-day lifestyle of Sydney. This includes eating out, socialising, biking and more.

Roughly 20% of the suburb is composed of public housing, and the contrast of newer buildings is plain to see as the suburb undergoes development. Many of these buildings are located close to Redfern Park – a focal point for many people who play sports or walk dogs.

Bourke Street on the east side runs down from Surry Hills and maintains a similar café-driven vibe which has turned the area into another hot spot for locals to get a good bite to eat or a drink.
