Marrickville is one of the many close-in suburbs that feeds workers and students to Sydney each day and welcomes them home again each evening. The town sits quietly on the northern shores of the Cooks River, a scant 7 km southwest of Sydney's busy central business district. When Thomas Chalder arrived here and built his home, he named the estate Marrick, after his native village of Marrick in North Yorkshire, England. In 1861, the village was called Marrickville (purportedly by a local innkeeper), and the name stuck.
Marrickville is home to many who have achieved their personal 15 minutes of fame, including a few contestants and winners of reality shows like Australian Idol and Australia's Next Top Model. But perhaps the most famous current resident is one David Wenham. The actor, producer, and director has been working in television and film since 1987, and his most notable Hollywood film achievements include Van Helsing, 300, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Wenham is a native of Marrickville, and still maintains a residence here.
MOST: Marrickville Open Studios Trail - In support of the vibrant art scene in Sydney, Marrickville's local government sponsors an annual one-day event to open the doors of galleries and artists' workshops to the public. This promotes interaction between the artists and the public, showcases the world-class talents living and working in Marrickville, and provides opportunities for art sales throughout the city.
Marrickville Festival - The Marrickville Festival is the keynote annual event in town, with more than 30,000 visitors anticipated for the next iteration. Join in the fun of arts, crafts, and local food and beverage as Marrickville celebrates its cultural diversity with the world.
Sydney Trapeze School - Perhaps the most unusual of Marrickville's attractions is the Sydney Trapeze School. Visitors can book training sessions and actually experience a basic version of life as a circus performer. Just remember - a job with the actual circus is not included with your lessons! The school ensures the safety of every participant, and trapeze lessons are a guaranteed to create lifelong memories.
Marrickville Organic Food and Farmers Market - Located at Addison Centre, the market offers up the best organic food and local delicacies that Marrickville has to offer. Going far beyond the everyday, the market allows visitors to sample world cuisines thanks to the ethnic diversity present in the town. Of course, fresh vegetables and fruits are available, but try the food from Vietnamese or Mexican stallholders for a more exotic treat. The Market is open Sundays for your convenience.
The Factory Theatre - A trip to Marrickville would be incomplete without taking in a show at the Factory Theatre. Though the venue has a focus on musical acts, there are frequent alternative events like comedy nights and cabaret shows. Whether the main event is an emerging local artist or an internationally known act, you're sure to enjoy the vibe of Factory Theatre.
Marrickville Golf Course - If you can't manage a holiday without golf, Marrickville Golf offers up an 18-hole, par 60 course that is open to the public, 7 days a week. Fully outfitted with a restaurant and a pro shop, your needs are easily met. The course is located only 4 km from the airport, so getting in and out is easy.
Out and Beyond - Being so well located and with excellent transport links, all the attractions of Sydney are easily accessible from Marrickville. Head east for Bondi Beach, south for Botany Bay and North to the iconic sights of the harbour and the North Shore Beaches.
