Tempe

The little Sydney suburb of Tempe, just 12km or so from the city, has the distinction of backing onto Sydney's Kingsford Smith Airport, with only the narrow Alexandra Canal between Tempe's homes and the tarmac. So, you'll need to steel yourself to absorb the roar of the jets as they lumber overhead here. There's a beaut little golf course just down the road (where, again, the planes howling by can shorten up your backswing) and Botany Bay, with its long beach, calm waters and teeming weekend crowds, is about two kilometres to the east. Tempe is a suburb in the Marrickville municipality which, at a mere 16.45 sq km, is one of the smallest local government areas in Australia. For many years one of the suburb's uglier landmarks, the Tempe tip, is about to undergo its ultimate reincarnation. After years of footing the bill for expensive regeneration, the council and a partner chosen from among some of the nation's largest property and development companies are about to redevelop the 40ha site as a joint venture.

Marrickville Organic Markets


If you like BoHo in the city, then this is the place to be. Organic Food Markets are located at The Addison Road Centre Marrickville and are on every Sunday - rain, hail or shine.

From the eclectic to the eccentric, from organic to conventional, eco-friendly, chai-tentingly chillaxing this market would have to be the best Organic Market in Sydney's Inner West. This can be seen in the choice of foods/produce to specialty products is a true reflection on how diverse the population who shop here week-in week-out are. Such is their devotion some will travel from as far as Blue Mountains simply to achieve their weekly organic fix!

Best bit is, they are on rail, hail or shine!

This market has something for everyone including the kids; jumping castles, pony rides, babycino, eco friendly baby food and clothing. and so much more.
