As a post-industrial suburb, St Peters feels almost directly like the inner west slightly rougher, grittier little brother.
Conveniently located and with good city connectivity, the suburb offers a (slightly) more affordable smattering of terrace and high-density housing, a range of drinking and dining opportunities, and streets dotted with colourful murals and other bohemian art.
Great offer of local pubs and bars, nightclubs, live music, theatre and cinemas
Good number of parking spaces, average cost of street parking, average speed and road quality
Easy access to supermarkets, local shops, and convenience stores
Accessing gyms, local parks and public spaces, sporting facilities and swimming centres, walkways and cycleways in the suburb
Quick access to train, buses and ferries
Local lively markets, large shopping centres and boutique shops
The laid-back lifestyle paces itself at Sydney Park and its 40 hectares of gardens, creeks and picnic areas.
While St Peters markets offer every month a great display of antiques, fresh produce and flowers, homewares, and fragrances; and May Lane celebrates colourful street art in an outdoor art gallery.
Sample Coffee located on Precinct 75 is a fuss-free space with freshly-roasted coffee leading the conversation. Aslan Coffee along May Street offers a little bit of Indonesia in their breakfast and lunch menu.
The bright and modern Southern Cross Hotel is the ideal spot for an afternoon drink or for wood-fired pizzas at their outdoor terrace, while Willie the Boatman is the rockabilly-meets-nautical themed brewery for those into a local craft drink.
