Burwood Train station
The Burwood Train station is modern and central while offering a direct train regularly throughout the hour straight to Central via Redfern. You can also hop on a train to various other suburbs in Sydney or go to Strathfield to get to other parts of Sydney and NSW by train.
The Burwood bus centre is located about 1 minute walk away on Railway Parade.
The Burwood park is located opposite the Westfield Shopping Mall. The park offers a relaxing natural garden space to unwind with some ponds and gardens. You can enjoy family or fitness activities like tennis and yoga here or just watch the birds and nature.
Burwood hosts a very popular event each spring, the Burwood Festival, it is held in September, with over 70,000 visitors attending. I attended the Burwood Park festival in September and as in the video there was plenty to see including model boats racing on the pond, exhibitions, classic cars, festival rides and stall food.
