Waterloo took its name from the 1815 Battle of Waterloo in Belgium after originally being known as Illpah, the Aboriginal term for plenty of raspberries.

In the 1820s the suburb was home to many industrial operations including the Fisher and Duncan Paper Mill and the Waterloo Flour Mills owned by William Hutchinson and Daniel Cooper. William Hutchinson, superintendent of convicts and public works, had been granted 1,400 acres of land in 1823. He sold Waterloo Farm to Daniel Cooper (1785-1853) and Solomon Levey (1794-1833). Cooper later bought out Levey's share and on his death the Waterloo Estate passed onto his son, also named Daniel Cooper, who was the first speaker of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly.
For fresh fruit and veg there’s the famous Danks Street Depot. Otherwise it’s a short trip up to Surry Hills Shopping Centre for all your supermarket and specialty store needs.
Distance from the CBD & Transport
Waterloo is located 4km south of the Sydney CBD and is serviced by bus routes to the city with easy access to Green Square underground railway station and Redfern railway station.
Schools, Education & Institutions
Waterloo Public School and Alexandria Park Community School are both located in the suburb and it’s just a short trip to neighbouring Surry Hills and Cleveland Street High School and Redfern Public School.
Real Estate & Design
Until recently, Waterloo has been a relatively poor area and is home to several public housing estates. Gentrification has been steadily moving forth and many of the original terraced houses and semi-detached homes have undergone designer transformations to accommodate today’s modern lifestyle. There are now many ultra-modern apartment developments that offer resort-style living and great investment opportunities.
Sports, Fitness & Recreation
An informal group of dog owners gather every evening in Joynton Park, while mothers groups gather in Tote Park. Since the opening of Nuffield Park, children and adults have started using the new tennis practice wall and basketball court.
Restaurants & Cafes
While you’re shopping at Danks Street Depot, you could head upstairs to the Cafe Sopra with a world class menu. Danks Street is also home to other cafés including Wah Wah Lounge.
