Campsie real estate is a sound investment prospect right now.
This vibrant suburb is always popular with younger residents, including professionals, tradespeople and office workers. This is partly because the commute into the city is reasonable – it’s 11km south west of the CBD, which is the big drawcard for both tenants and buyers. And there’s plenty on offer locally: the suburb offers a range of shops, cafes and other services, including a library, shopping precinct, ice rink and swimming pool nearby.
Best of all, if you love food, this is the place to find lots of well-priced and authentic Asian restaurants. Plus all the attractions of inner Sydney are just a train or bus ride away, giving it lots of lifestyle appeal. The train station and good choice of rentals mean it’s a great place to buy an investment property, too.
Campsie real estate: what’s on offer?
Housing stock includes freestanding houses, small low-rise apartments and townhouses. There are also some older homes that are ripe for renovation, with some new-build apartments added to the mix more recently.
Things to do in Campsie
Try the food
The obvious thing to do in Campsie is head out to eat at one of the suburb’s many cheap-and-cheerful restaurants. The area’s multicultural character means there are some great venues offering Korean, Malaysian, Japanese and Chinese food, without the central Sydney price tags.
Se Jong Korean BBQ buffet
This is a popular and well-priced Korean barbecue restaurant. Choose your own marinated meat at the buffet, cook it on coals and round out your meal with Korean sushi and lots of kimchi. Book in advance as it gets busy, especially in winter.
8 London Street, Campsie, 02 9787 7126
Reliable, homestyle Malaysian food with all the classics such as laksa, beef rendang, nasi lemak and much more.
279 Beamish Street, Campsie, (02) 9718 8302
Casual Japanese sushi restaurant. Locals love the reasonable prices and friendly service, and the high turnover means the sushi is super-fresh.
193 Beamish Street, Campsie (02) 9789 5759
Just east of the suburb’s centre is the Cook’s River, a great place to spend some time or cycle all the way to Botany Bay, with lots of places to stop off for a barbecue or picnic along the way.
At nearby Tasker Park, you’ll also find an ice skating rink, and the Canterbury Leisure and Aquatic Centre.
Hit the shops
The suburb’s shops and supermarkets are based around Campsie Centre, off Amy Street, a few blocks from the train station. Here you’ll find Woolworths, Big W, lots of fresh produce at good prices, and several Asian supermarkets. You’ll also find services such as the post office, medical centre and a great local library. There’s a strip of shops and eateries on nearby Beamish Street. The closest Westfield shopping mall is in Burwood, and you’ll also find lots of options for shopping and dining out in surrounding suburbs, such as Clemton Park and Dulwich Hill.
Campsie Schools and services
Campsie falls within the catchment of three primary schools covering kindergarten to year six: Campsie Public School, plus St Mel’s, a Catholic primary school, and Harcourt Public School. There are both boys’ and girls’ high schools in the neighbouring suburb of Canterbury, giving residents plenty of choice locally. The suburb is also a short commute to some sought-after private schools including Methodist Ladies’ College and Presbyterian Ladies College, both in Burwood, and for boys, St Patrick’s College in Strathfield.
Campsie is also home to the long-running Canterbury Hospital, which has both an emergency department and an after-hours GP.
