Kyeemagh Market Gardens

Location: Occupation Road, Rockdale, NSW 2216

Constructed: 1892


This land has been used as market gardens since the late nineteenth century and are still associated with the Chinese community. Market gardens used to be common in Rockdale and throughout Sydney but now there are only three such sites remaining in the inner Sydney region. Their shrinking number has been recognised by their listing on the State Heritage Register, and by their inclusion on the Rockdale Heritage Drive, which takes visitors past the Kyeemagh Market Gardens.
