Situated 11 kilometres from Sydney’s business district, or in other words, Arncliffe is very accessible from the airport. All you have to do to get to this sprawling suburb of great views and breezy bay is hopping into a car hire for Arncliffe, and you’ll be there in a jiffy. If you’re visiting this wonderful place for a short while, getting around with a car rental in Arncliffe is your best bet.
Named after a small village in North Yorkshire, England, Arncliffe was originally home to tribes of indigenous Australians. Valleys of local creeks, Wolli Creek and Bardwell Creek carry evidence of Aboriginal presence in smoke-blackened caves. Since the 1960s, the population in Arncliffe has grown increasingly diverse, with many Irish, Greek and Lebanese immigrants.
For those looking for recreation, Arncliffe is a mere 15 minutes away from any of the lower eastern suburb beaches, and 5 minutes away from Brighton. While Arncliffe could have done with a few more eateries, there’s more than enough in Brighton, which is only a short drive away. However, Arncliffe has some Lebanese eateries to die for, along with great shopping options nearby.
