    Ermington, Sydney Suburb

    Ermington NSW is a busy suburb of South East Sydney that is perfect for families, couples and young singles alike. It is a place that is extremely close to everything a person could need; Shop’s, doctors, schools, entertainment venues, Universities, public transport and much more. The suburb of Ermington is growing daily with new homes being built at all times of the year. Ermington is seen below in the centre of the map. 



    Public Transport

    Transport is something that everyone needs. Ermington meets this need with its wide variety of public transport. Buses, Trains and even Ferry’s are accessible only a few minutes in each direction.

    The closest train station is either Meadowbank or Rydalmere.

    These stations are roughly a 5-10 minute drive in either direction of Ermington.

    Rydalmere is home to the closest wharf in which you can catch a Ferry. Busses are available from many locations around Ermington – The most common being on Victoria Road.

    These busses can connect you to the Train and Ferry systems giving a greater flexibility in transport.

    Via public transport it takes roughly 50 minutes to get from Ermington town centre to Sydney’s Central Station.

    This time is due to get even shorter in the coming years with the NSW Government announcing a light rail that is coming to connect the greater area of Sydney with ease.

    If public transport doesn’t interest a person then there is an endless amount of Taxi’s and Uber cars available to take you from A to B.

    Using Taxi’s and Uber’s will take longer to get from Ermington town Centre to Sydney’s Central Station as depending what time of day it is traffic getting in and out of the city can cause delays.




    Something that is a deciding factor for many young families is the availability of Education.

    Ermington is the perfect location for those wanting education options as it is in close proximity of several schools and day care facilities.

    Most of these facilities are within walking distance which creates less of a burden when it comes to the school drop off.

    For those who want to study themselves there is only a short distance of travel required to reach both University of Western Sydney and TAFE at Meadowbank (right next to the Meadowbank Train station).



    Ermington is a suburb in which quite a few people tend to rent rather than buy.

    Located a short distance from the city it is the ideal spot for those who work in the CBD and surrounding suburbs.

    The average rental in Ermington is 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom and 1 carport – these houses go for roughly $300-600 per week depending on the vicinity to the Paramatta River and how new the house is.

    Home for purchase in Ermington as of October 2017 are going from anywhere between 850,000 to 2.5 million.




    Ermington is the perfect spot for a family who would like to live an outdoor lifestyle.

    There are many outdoor activities only minutes from your doorstep. Halverston Park is located in Ermington on the Parramatta River.

    This park has been completely refurbished to entertain children of all ages.

    With a wide grass area it is perfect to kick a ball around or to adventure around the park.

    There are also many tables and public BBQ’s making it a perfect summer destination.

    A short 15 minute drive from Ermington you can find other parks in the area which have public water activities and fountains which are a hit with the locals.

    These activities are free and are also in the vicinity of public tables and BBQs which makes it the perfect location for children’s birthday parties.

    With a rough population of 10700 people it is easy to see that Ermington is becoming more desirable as time goes by.

    The Parramatta council and the NSW Government have put a lot into the development of this area in the last few years.

    The area of AE2 (pictured below) is just one estate inside of Ermington.

    AE2 is the perfect place for people of all backgrounds. With new state of the art apartments built along the waterfront that surround beautiful homes and townhouses; this is truly the place to be.


    Entertainment & Shopping

    For other entertainment Ermington is an ideal location.

    With Sydney Olympic park only a short distance away Ermington is the perfect destination to live if you are someone who likes to attend sporting events, concerts, The Royal Easter Show and many other conventions.

    Sydney Olympic Park has a range of events on every single weeks.

    Attending these events usually leaves a visitor with a headache with transport and parking issues.

    For Ermington residents these events are able to be visited with only a short 20 minute walk (across the Paramatta River).

    Sydney Olympic Park is also home to some amazing restaurants which is pleasing to residents as you can enjoy top quality dining without having to make the commute into the Sydney CBD.


    Ermington is home to a small shopping strip located on Betty Cuthbert Drive.

    These shops are perfect for the essentials with a pharmacy, doctors, hairdresser, supermarket, news agency and various fast food outlets.

    There is also a Vet, Dental Surgery and Petrol Station located on Victoria Road right across from If you are looking for other shops such as clothing stores, cafes etc then Top Ryde Shopping Centre is located only a 10 minute drive away.

    Top Ryde is also home to a cinema and Monkey Mania – Children’s Activity Centre.



    Employment in the Ermington area is as adverse as the area is so close to the Sydney CBD.

    Opportunities include administration, retail, hospitality and many other specialist areas.

    Whilst jobs are highly sought after in Sydney it is a market that can be navigated quite easily.

    Many are given employment after simply dropping a resume off at a business in opening hours.


    For all of the reasons explored and more Ermington is the perfect place for people of all demographics. Ermington is home to people over a range of socioeconomic groups making it liveable for everyone from the single friends sharing a home through university to the families wanting somewhere to make their forever home.
