Kingsford

Location & Overview

Situated 7 kilometres southeast of Sydney's central business district and just 5 kilometres from the renowned Coogee Beach, Kingsford stands as the multicultural hub of the East.

Traditional & History

The Gadigal and Bidjigal Clans, the original custodians of this Sydney Coast area, have a rich cultural heritage. Originally known as South Kensington, Kingsford was renamed in 1936 to pay tribute to the esteemed Australian aviator Sir Charles Kingsford Smith, who passed away in 1935. This renaming extended to the nearby Sydney Airport, also honouring Sir Charles Kingsford Smith.

Housing

Mainly a residential area, Kingsford has a mixture of housing types including apartments, detached and semi-detached homes. Furthermore, the Australian Army depot is located in the eastern part of Kingsford.

Recreation and Amenities

To honour the suburb's history, a noteworthy attraction is the commissioned mosaics featuring the Southern Cross plane and the mural of Sir Charles Kingsford Smith, situated in the pedestrian mall area of Kingsford. Another distinctive aspect of Kingsford is its close proximity to the University of New South Wales (UNSW). With the university's main campus nearby, Kingsford is a favoured residential option among students and staff.

Dining and Entertainment

Anzac Parade boasts a diverse range of authentic and budget-friendly Southeast Asian eateries. One standout is Niji Sushi Bar, known for its sophisticated ambiance, featuring both a sushi-train style bar and an a la carte option offering Japanese Isakaya. For a taste further afield, explore Houston Road's Alevri, a Greek bakery that skilfully blends traditional Greek dishes with café favourites, including the innovative baklava croissant and moussaka pie. A visit to Kingsford wouldn't be complete without trying these delectable offerings.
