Erskineville: Just Minutes On The Train To Sydney

Erskineville, or Erko to the locals, is an inner-west suburb of Sydney with four public transit train stations within easy walking distance, including the Erskineville Station in the middle of the suburb. Its local businesses and community feel makes it extremely popular with young families and singles. Offering more value than Sydney's eastern side and more convenience than Sydney's surrounding suburbs, Erskineville is fast becoming a hotspot for Sydney holiday makers. 

Shops, Restaurants And Bars In Erko

Though Erskineville is largely residential, it maintains a strong village vibe, with many local shops, restaurants, bars, and cafes sprinkled throughout the suburb. There's a shopping district located right outside the Erskineville station. The Imperial Hotel, immortalised in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, is also in Erko, along with other popular bars like Rose of Australia and the Hive Bar. For a quick dinner at a local favourite, you can't beat Pizza Piatza Cafe. Maggie's Thai and Kuku Tanuki are good bets for ethnic cuisine.

Erskineville Park is the community park, whereas Erskineville Oval hosts the neighbourhood rugby facilities. Sydney Park is also just a quick walk away.

One of Erko's claims to fame is that it served as the setting for Erskineville Kings, an indie movie starring Hugh Jackman. 

Erskineville Accommodation

Well-located, affordable Sydney accommodation can be hard to find, which is why Erko is such an inner city gem. While some Erskineville holiday rentals are definitely on the more luxurious side with community pools and amenities, others are cheerful apartments that show off the charm of the neighbourhood. If you want to get a taste of what living in Sydney is really like, Erskineville is a fabulous place to be. 

Close To All Sydney Has To Offer

Newton, the popular suburb next to Erko, offers a great place to shop, eat, or do a spot of people watching. The area is filled with area students and creative types, so you'll find lots of youthful shops and bars. The ethnic restaurants in Newton are also terrific. 

Erskineville is just a quick train ride away from nearly all of Sydney's main attractions: no car required. It's also just a 10 to 15 minute drive to the airport. Bondi Beach is an easy drive or train ride, so you can plan on spending a sunny day on the coast. For a bit of culture, head to the Art Gallery of New South Wales or see a show put on by Sydney's thriving theatre scene.

If you're looking to stay in a place that's pulsing with local community but still is close to all Sydney has to offer, you won't find a better place to stay than Erskineville.

The location just by Museum station makes it easy to get around by public transport (including to the airport) but also less than half an hour's walk to Circular Quay and 20 mins walk to Darling Harbour - we mainly walked while we were in the city. We enjoyed the gym and pool too, and the flat is very accessible. The company quickly sorted out some minor issues (lack of light bulbs in some places!). We will try to get the same apartment when we return next year as it was so convenient and comfortable. It is on a main road and fairly busy so we didn't make use of the balconies, but we didn't find it noisy (other than due to some works on the station for a couple of nights we were warned of).

The apartment was perfect for the 5 of us (2 kids and a baby- cot and sheets were provided) Our hosts were great meeting us late in the evening and they were extremely accommodating after we left our iPad in the apartment and only realised as we at the airport. After contacting them, they didn't hesitate and sent the iPad onto our forwarding address which we so gratefully appreciated. Would stay here again.

I would recommend this apartment to any visitors coming to central Sydney.
