Glebe is an inner-western suburb of Sydney. Glebe is located 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) southwest of the Sydney central business district and is part of the local government area of the City of Sydney, in the Inner West region.
Glebe is surrounded by Blackwattle Bay and Rozelle Bay, inlets of Sydney Harbour, in the north. The suburb of Ultimo lies to the east and the suburbs of Annandale and Forest Lodge lie to the west. The southern boundary is formed by Parramatta Road and Broadway. Broadway is a locality sited along the road of the same name, which is located on the border of Glebe, Chippendale and Ultimo.
Glebe’s name is derived from the fact that the land on which it was developed was a glebe, originally owned by the Anglican Church. ‘The Glebe’ was a land grant of 162 hectares (400 acres) given by Governor Arthur Phillip to Reverend Richard Johnson, Chaplain of the First Fleet, in 1790.
In the 19th century, Glebe was home to architect, Edmund Blacket, who had migrated from England. Blacket built his family home, Bidura, on Glebe Point Road in 1858, designing it along conventional Victorian Regency lines. He also designed St John’s Church, on the corner of Glebe Point Road and St Johns Road. The church was built from 1868 to 1870.
The suburb of Glebe was home to a first grade football team in the New South Wales Rugby League, now the National Rugby League. The Glebe Dirty Reds were formed in 1908 and played in the first seasons of rugby league in Australia, with home games at Wentworth Park. The foundation club did not win a premiership, and was excluded from the competition in 1930.
In the 1970s, feminist activists took over an abandoned terrace house and set up Australia’s first women’s shelter, the Elsie Refuge.
Glebe Point Road is the main road through the suburb, featuring a shopping strip, known for its specialty shops and cafés and for its variety of ethnic restaurants – Indian, Thai, Italian, Nepalese, Dutch-Indonesian, and other minority ethnic tastes.
Broadway Shopping Centre was built on the landmark site of the former Grace Brothers department store. The shopping centre includes a food court and cinema complex, and completed a renovation in July 2007 which added a fourth floor.
Glebe has a popular market which is held on Saturdays in the grounds of Glebe Primary School. Arts, crafts, clothing and edibles are sold. They are known as the alternative markets for the alternative lifestyle goods that are offered. New and second-hand goods are sold there. sydney airport transfers, carnival cruise transfers, group transportation services, maxi taxi how many seats, maxi cab booking, Sydney maxi/taxi, maxi cab taxi, Cruise Transfers in Sydney, sydney maxi taxi book, book a maxi/taxi, maxi/taxi cabs, maxi/taxis sydney, Sydney maxi/taxi, booking maxi/taxi, maxi/taxi to airport, maxi cab taxi, Cruise Transfers in Sydney, maxi taxi parramatta, best cabs in Sydney, best taxi service sydney.
