New Residents Guide to Liverpool

Welcome to Liverpool!

Here is some helpful information to get you started in your new home. Below is information on some of the services you’ll need in the first few weeks.

About Liverpool

The Darug and Dhurawal nations are the Aboriginal traditional custodians of the land which now forms our great City of Liverpool.

Liverpool is Australia’s fourth-oldest city and is home to more than 214,000 people (2016 Census) in 42 suburbs. Western Sydney Airport is being built in Liverpool’s west, contributing to the area’s rapid growth in housing and jobs.

At the heart of South West Sydney, Liverpool is one of the most multicultural places in Australia. Our residents hail from 150 different countries, many of which are represented through restaurants and shops in our City Centre and suburbs.

A place of natural beauty with a growing city centre, Liverpool is also home to one of NSW’s premier arts facilities – Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre
