Arncliffe is south of the Cooks River and Wolli Creek, close to Sydney Airport.
Arncliffe is a mostly residential area featuring low-density detached and semi-detached houses and some medium-density townhouses and blocks of flats.
There are also some areas of commercial and light industrial developments.
Arncliffe was settled by people from a variety of backgrounds.Original settlers in the area included British, Irish, Chinese from the goldfields, and Germans who tended their vegetable gardens.
In the early days of European settlement, Germans represented the largest non-Anglo-Celtic migrant group in Australia. Arncliffe exhibits much evidence of the diversity of its population, including architectural styles ranging from Victorian through Federation era cottages to latter-day ‘statement mansions’.
The Al-Zahra Mosque and St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Church reflect the diversity of the community. A dedicated olive grove, in Jubilee Park, which is now part of Bardwell Valley, was created in recognition of the contribution made to the City of Rockdale by citizens who have their origins in Greece. Arncliffe has become home to many immigrants from around the world.
The first wave included Greeks and Italians who began moving south from Sydney’s inner-city suburbs. In early 1963, more southern European families arrived from the Balkans including Macedonians from Macedonia to settle in the Arncliffe area. From the late 1970s, they were joined by many families from Lebanon, who sought asylum from the civil wars and ongoing conflict in the Middle East and Lebanon.
Sixty percent of Arncliffe’s residents now come from backgrounds other than the predominantly Anglo-Saxon and Irish origins of the earlier immigrants.
The Princes Highway runs north towards the city and south towards Rockdale and Kogarah. The other main roads through the suburb are Forest Road and Wollongong Road which run south towards Hurstville. The M5 South Western Motorway runs southwest towards Beverly Hills, Liverpool, and northeast towards Botany and the city.
