Welcome to

Burwood Council

Identified as a major centre by the NSW Government, Burwood is set to grow significantly in the next 25 years, taking advantage of the area’s strong local economy and excellent transport infrastructure.

Council is committed not only to maximising the area’s growth, but to ensuring that Burwood remains an exciting and vibrant place to live, work and visit.

We have already completed an extensive program of public works, including improvements to Burwood Park, the Avenue of Nations and surrounding street scapes.

From Cr John Faker


Christmas is fast approaching and to celebrate Council has decorated our town centres across the municipality.

A Christmas tree adorns the entrance of Burwood Park which follows a vibrant lighting display along the iconic palm trees. The beloved Christmas tree at The Strand in Croydon has also made a return.
