Tempe has a diverse history that has shaped its unique character.


Situated approximately 8 kilometers southwest of the Sydney Central Business District, Tempe has been shaped by its past, influenced by local industries such as brickmaking and market gardening. Today, Tempe retains a blend of historical architecture and contemporary developments.

Local amenities contribute to Tempe's allure as a hidden gem of urban living. The main commercial hub along Princes Highway provides a mix of convenience stores, cafes, and shops, catering to the daily needs of the community. IKEA Tempe is a local landmark, and there are numerous retail and dining options as well.


Tempe Reserve, situated along the Cooks River, offers expansive parklands, sports fields, and picnic areas. The riverside setting and walking trails make it a popular spot for both relaxation and outdoor activities.

The Tempe railway station, part of the Sydney Trains network, facilitates convenient travel to the Sydney CBD and surrounding areas. The Princes Highway and nearby bus routes further enhance connectivity, providing additional transportation options for residents.
