  WHAT’S LIVING IN Harris Park LIKE?

Located in Sydney's West and known as the city's Little India, Harris Park is a small suburb just south of Parramatta. Thanks to its location it's just a short walk to the shopping and dining of Parramatta and the train station if you need to head to the Sydney CBD for work.

The main road through Harris Park, Wigram Street, is full of Indian businesses, from grocery stores to salons to shops. It's also got one of the highest concentractions of Indian restaurants in Sydney and attracts diners from all over the region. Residents say that on Diwali it feels like you're back in India.

Overall, there is a village-like vibe here. Except for Wigram Street it's a quiet, friendly place with tree-lined streets. Most of the homes are 3-4 story brick apartment buildings, though some streets do have modest single-family homes with small, tidy yards. This has been a hot suburb for property investors who have been priced out of nearby areas.

Harris Park primarily attracts couples and families but there are also a lot of students due to its proximity to a University of Western Sydney campus.

In the past decade there has been some violence towards Indian immigrants from earlier Lebanese immigrants.

Harris Park is bordered on the north by Parramatta, on the east by Rosehill, on the south by Granville, and on the west by Granville and Parramatta.
