One of the largest Suburbs in the Fairfield City area, Smithfield is the traditional land of the Cabrogal people of the Darug Nation. As the first major settlement of the Fairfield Local Government area, there is a lot of history in the streets of Smithfield and the changing nature of the town is something worthy of exploring.
Smithfield is largely known for its industrial estate, being the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, but we’re here to tell you there is so much more to see and do here. With a thriving food scene and cultural destinations, Smithfield cannot be overlooked for a wonderful day out.
Start your day off by exploring the Smithfield portion of The Horsley Drive. With a thriving food scene, you’ll find restaurants and cafes serving up a wide array of food options. Grab a coffee from Coffee and Crackles before crossing Smithfield Road and visiting Fairfield City Museum & Gallery.
After months of lockdowns, the Fairfield City Museum & Gallery is back better than ever with a whole range of events. With all their exhibition spaces and the Vintage Village now back up and running you can really make the most of your visit to the site.
The Museum and Gallery is a cornerstone of the Smithfield area and is a place not to be missed when visiting the Smithfield area.
After you finish up at the gallery, back onto the Horsley Drive for something to eat. If you’re after something a little more casual but super fun, we couldn’t recommend Saigon Hustle more!
Walking into the space, you’re met with bright neon lights, Vietnamese paraphernalia, and a bar stocked to the 10s. Saigon Hustle was developed as a response to the owner, Andrew, being tired of travelling into the CBD of Sydney for good Vietnamese fusion food.
A combination of traditional Vietnamese flavours and influence developed from growing up in multicultural Western Sydney, the restaurant and bar is the perfect downtown hang, perfect for a celebration, a night out, or simply a good time!
If you’re after something a little more high end, you can’t go past Candelori’s Restaurant and Bar across the road. Another institution of the area, Candelori’s has been serving the highest quality Italian cuisine since 1999.
There is so much to try in and around Smithfield that you’ll definitely need multiple visits to experience all the wonderful offerings!
