Camperdown may be a small inner-western suburb of Sydney but it certainly packs a punch. Located just four kilometres south-west of the CBD, it’s the perfect option for tourists looking for somewhere to stay that’s close to all the action but without the hustle and bustle.
Lined with pretty Victorian and Edwardian terraced housing, the streets are a picturesque setting for early-morning coffee strolls to Camperdown or Victoria parks – and when it comes to the hospitality scene, there is no shortage of bars, cafes and cheap eats to choose from.
Sydney’s inner west is popular among students due to the prestigious University of Sydney’s Camperdown campus, renowned for The Quadrangle, a prominent 19th-century sandstone building unique to the architectural fabric of Australia. The suburb is also home to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, historic Camperdown Cemetery and Nicholson Museum, with its 30,000 artefacts from the Mediterranean, Middle East and Europe. Make sure you visit the popular Glebe Markets, known for its showcase of bohemian fashion, art, jewellery and accessories. Open every Saturday, the markets are an easy walk from Camperdown, with plenty of places to stop for breakfast or a caffeine hit on the way. Start your Camperdown adventure with Choice Hotels.
