Drummoyne, New South Wales



Drummoyne is a suburb of western Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is located 6 kilometres south-west of the Sydney central business district and is the administrative centre for the local government area of the City of Canada Bay

Drummoyne sits on the peninsula between Iron Cove and Five Dock Bay. It is surrounded on three sides by Sydney Harbour and the Parramatta River and, as such, has some of Sydney\'s best waterfront views. Drummoyne neighbours the similarly historic Five Dock and Abbotsford.

William Wright, a merchant, whaler and sealer bought land in the northern part of the area in 1853. The property was bounded by present day Lyons Road and Victoria Road. Drummoyne House was built in the Georgian Classical style. It was rectangular in plan with a hipped roof with a concave verandah across the entire front and returned along each side. He named it Drummoyne Park after his family home at Drummoyne on Clyde in Scotland. In Gaelic, Drummoyne means flat topped ridge.

Drummoyne is linked to Rozelle by the Victoria Road and Huntleys Point by the Gladesville Bridge. Victoria Road, one of Sydney\'s busiest roads, cuts through the heart of Drummoyne en route to the Sydney CBD. Victoria Road\'s presence makes the CBD transport hub extremely accessible, as numerous and frequent bus routes from Sydney\'s west merge in Drummoyne. However, it also leads to a bottleneck during the morning and evening peaks.

Regular Ferry and Rivercat services from the Wolseley Street wharf also provide a transport option for Drummoyne residents, servicing the Parramatta-City route.

Drummoyne is mostly residential with some commercial developments, and still retains some of its industrial heritage. The main shopping strip is located along Victoria Road and the intersecting Lyons Road. There is also a small shopping plaza at this point. A shopping mall is located at Birkenhead Point, known as the Birkenhead Point Shopping Centre, featuring a Coles supermarket, specialty shops and factory outlet stores. The Canada Bay Civic Centre, the administration building for the City of Canada Bay, is located in Marlborough Street.

Drummoyne is home to Drummoyne Oval, situated on the banks of the Parramatta River. In 1931, as a depression project, Drummoyne Oval was constructed on the site of a small oval which the Glebe and Balmain Rugby Union Clubs had used for junior matches since 1892. To ensure longevity of tenure, because there were not enough sporting grounds in Sydney, the Glebe Balmain Club decided to change its name to the Drummoyne District Rugby Football Club. It did so without giving up its long-held traditions, the scarlet jumpers of Glebe and its tag, \"The Dirty Reds\" and the black and gold of Balmain, colours still worn by today\'s players on their socks. The Drummoyne Rugby Club still plays at Drummoyne Oval as it has done for many years and is its permanent home. It is also a permanent home to Sydney first grade cricket side Balmain-UTS during the summer and occasionally hosts the NSW Blues Cricket side in the national ING Cup competition. With a carpet-like playing surface and large capacity (approximately 8,000), the oval is often used for cricket, Australian rules football and Rugby Union.

Drummoyne Olympic pool is located on the banks of Iron Cove. Filtered chlorine is separated from open water by 3 metres of poolside deck. The Bay Run is a popular route for runners and walkers.
