Discover Cabramatta - A Taste of Asia
Just an hour from the Sydney CBD, Cabramatta is an explosion of Asian culture and colour. The suburb is Australia's most ethnically diverse area, with 75% of its residents born overseas.

In Cabramatta, you can choose from more than a dozen categories of South East Asian cuisine - all authentic and affordable. The shopping is an adventurous experience, with exotic ingredients perfect for authentic Asian cooking on offer, as well as a whole range of bargains in stunning fabrics, fashions and footwear, toys, electronics, watches, jewellery and jades.

You can also discover the history of Cabramatta – see the colourful Pailau Gates, elderly women in their traditional outfits and herbalists preparing their potions. You can also visit Canley Vale, just five minutes from the epicentre of the Asian bazaar, to see the beautiful Tien Hau and Kwan Zin Buddhist temples. Enjoy their serenity and colourful ceremonies.

Cabramatta - A Major Centre of the Future
Cabramatta was identified in the State Government Metropolitan Strategy as a potential major centre for the future. Recognition was on account of the suburb's assets, including transport and open space connections and its potential as a shopping and service hub.

Southern Sydney Freight Line
The Australian Rail Track Corporation is constructing a dedicated freight line between Macarthur and Sefton - the Southern Sydney Freight Line (SSFL). This 36 kilometres of track will provide a dedicated freight link between Melbourne and Brisbane. The track will pass through the east side of the Cabramatta Town Centre next to the current passenger lines.

Fairfield City Council is concerned about the impact of the proposed SSFL on our City and local residents and is working with the proponent and key stakeholders to minimise any negative effects. Council does, however, support the construction of the SSFL as an underground track through Cabramatta and the simultaneous construction of State Rail's third underground passenger line.
