Ashfield is one Australia's most culturally diverse municipalities, with a high
percentage of residents born overseas. Prior to the arrival of Europeans and the
First Fleet in Port Jackson in 1788, the region was the home of the Wangal
Aborigines. The first white person to officially make his home in the Ashfield
district was the colony's first Surveyor-General Baron Augustus Alt, who was
granted the land in 1794, although there were a number of farms in the district.
Ashfield is one of the inner west suburbs of Western Sydney region, surrounded by suburbs
that include Ashbury, Croydon/Croydon Park, Haberfield and Summer Hill.
Today, Ashfield is popular for the diverse shops, as well as a number of parks
