Auburn is a suburb in western Sydney, in the state of New South Wales Australia. Auburn is located 19 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district and is the administrative centre of the local government area of Auburn Council.


The suburb was named after Oliver Goldsmith\'s poem The Deserted Village, which describes \'Auburn\' in England as the loveliest village of the plain.[1]

 Religious structures

Auburn Gallipoli Mosque

The Sri Mandir in Auburn is Australia\'s oldest Hindu temple, having opened in 1977. The temple has been the target of attacks in more recent years.[5]

The Auburn Gallipoli Mosque took thirteen years to construct and was largely funded by the Turkish community in the area.[6] The name of the mosque reflects the legacy of Gallipoli in Turkey and the shared bond between Australian society and the Australian Turkish Muslim Community who constructed the mosque.

Architect Omer Kirazoglu designed it in the Classical Ottoman Style of Architecture characterised by a central dome and minarets. The builder was Ahmet Asim who donated much of his time. It is a source of pride for the local community and whilst considered a Turkish mosque it is frequented by all sections of the Islamic community and is one of Sydney\'s busiest mosques.



Auburn prides itself as one of the most multicultural communities in Australia. The traditionally Anglo-celtic European population has slowly been replaced by a high percentage of immigrants from Turkish, Lebanese and Vietnamese backgrounds. Auburn also has fast growing Somali, Bosnian, Iraqi, Iranian, Afghan, Pakistani, Sudanese and Chinese communities. The five most prominent religions in Auburn are Islam (40.9%), Catholicism (15.3%), No religion (10.3%), Buddhism (6.8%) and Anglican (3.6%).
