Community Profile

Fairfield City (map) is located in Sydney’s south western suburbs, about 32 kilometres from the Sydney General Post Office. Our City is bounded by Blacktown, Holroyd and Parramatta cities in the north, Bankstown City in the east, Liverpool City in the south and Penrith City in the west.

Fairfield City has an estimated population of over 200,000 and is one of the most culturally diverse council areas in Australia. More than half of our residents were born overseas, coming from mostly non-English speaking countries. Many new migrants to Sydney choose to live in our multicultural community. The majority of our residents speak a language other than English at home, with the most common being Vietnamese, Assyrian, Arabic, Cantonese and Spanish.

Our current population is relatively young compared to other parts of Sydney with many young families choosing to reside here. However, our fastest growing age group are the 65 years and over. As residents we are very proud of our diversity and see it as our major strength.
