Chippendale Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Chippendale Area
Chippendale is one of those suburbs in Sydney no one can really put their finger on. Head in the direction of Sydney University and most people just kind of end up there, and frankly, that's the best way to start in this community.
Trendy cafes haggling for space, uni students usurping every corner pub, and creative types moving projects in between warehouse offices, Chippendale is like most inner-city working-class suburbs, only a little less spacious and a little less gentrified. A lot of the back streets retain their unpolished charm and most of the inhabitants don't feel pressured into wearing a beanie. Tiny cafes, houses and offices follow no rules of concentration. It all just amalgamates in this borderless neighbourhood.
Chippendale has recently taken advantage of their bohemian disorder and established a creative precinct between Broadway and Central as a platform for the suburb, meaning there will always be things to do in the area. The initiative grabs the creative strings of Chippendale and ties them together for Sydney's convenience, bringing together artists, fashion designers, animators, web designers and generally creative thinkers to organise activities and events that draw the community closer together. If you want to see it in action, check out the Central Park Apartments next door featuring the world's tallest vertical garden. The Green Wall boasts 360 different types of native Aussie plants, completely reinvigorating the urban space. Witness the way we think about the city change before your very eyes.
Chippendale encapsulates the urban revolution sweeping across cities all over the world. Where the boundaries between nature and civilisation collapse, and work and leisure gradually fuse, come and taste a new way of living. Let your creative juices flow and cross your fingers you'll stumble into Chippendale.
