Inner West (Sydney)
The Inner West of Sydney is an area which encompasses the inner-city suburbs of Sydney located immediately adjacent to, and west of the central business district. Not a precise geographical region, this area includes some suburbs of the City of Sydney proper, and much of the local council areas of Leichhardt, Marrickville, Ashfield, Canada Bay (which includes the former governmental areas of Drummonyne ), Burwood, Strathfield and Canterbury.
Although the suburbs within the region vary widely in socio-economic conditions, as a whole, it is characterised by medium- to high-density housing and includes some of the older constructions in Sydney such as the terrace houses of Glebe and Newtown. It is also the location of several tertiary institutions such as University of Sydney and the University of Technology, Sydney and the more downtown areas have high student populations.
