Kingsford Suburb, Sydney
Kingsford, once known as South Kensington is a suburb located 7 kilometers south-east of the Sydney central business district. It is an eastern suburb of the city of Randwick. The area got its name from an aviator Sir Charles Kingsford. To honor him, the suburb and an airport get their names from him for his immense contributions to the area.
Development of Kingsford began in 1920’s when settlers arrived in the area. After the growth of the area began to take shape, many Greek immigrants moved to Kingsford in 1940s and set up businesses. Most of the Greeks arrived in Kingsford from Castellorizian Island. After establishing themselves and successful businesses for decades, they opened a club in 1973, Castellorizian club.
Kingsford is to the immediate east of Kensington, which is part of why it was at one time known as part of Kensington. Randwick is the area neighboring Kingsford to the north and the east while East Gardens is south. Moore Park is North West of the suburb and is a favorite park for many residents and tourists.
