Close to the CBD and the best of the inner west, Belmore is worth exploring.
Connected by Canterbury and Punchbowl Roads and neighbouring Lakemba and Campsie, Belmore has no problems passing the location test and it’s tops for diversity, too, thanks to the unique blend of cultures and backgrounds of the residents that call Belmore home.
By and large, Belmore is a youthful suburb, with the under-35s making up the largest proportion of residents in the area. But hot on their heels are the forty-somethings and up as well as families of school-aged children.
Food and family are intertwined in Belmore, with many family-run restaurants found within the postcode, including Chinese, Lebanese, Greek, Thai and Italian. Most can be found down the busy and vibrant Burwood Road, close to the train station, which connects to the Bankstown Line. A swift turn down Leylands Parade and you’ll find yourself in the famous Belmore Sportsground, once the home of the legendary Canterbury Bulldogs. There are plenty of schooling options too, including St Josephs Primary School, Belmore South Public School, Belmore North Public School, Belmore Boys High School, and All Saints Grammar.
Pockets of Belmore are treated to charming twentieth-century Federation and interwar California Bungalow homes, which are slowly being snapped up by savvy investors and home renovators. Larger blocks also allow for more modern builds for families. For singles, you’ll find new apartment blocks and an interesting mix of Art Deco units, too.
The beauty of Belmore lies in all the possibilities it offers – great food, interesting cultures, a sense of history and fantastic public transport, plus a great selection of schools, too. It’s a place in the process of transformation, from the high street to the community.
