Lakemba is a suburb south west of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Lakemba is located 15 kilometres south west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Canterbury-Bankstown Council.
Lakemba has many shops, on and around Haldon Street, where a wide range of international and local foods can be purchased. There are also commercial developments along Canterbury Road. The Lakemba Palms shopping centre, is located on the corner of Haldon Street and Lakemba street. On 3 December 2007, a fire gutted the Lakemba Palms shopping centre.
The area was at an early time in its colonial history originally known as Potato Hill because potatoes were cropped here. Land grants by the new colonial government began in Lakemba about 1810. Samuel Hockley was granted 200,000 m2, which he called Essex Hill Farm, after his home county in England. The suburb was known as Belmore South until 1910.
Benjamin Taylor had a 22 hectare property in the 1880s. He named his property “Lakeba” (pronounced Lakemba) after the Lakeba island in the Lau Islands group of Fiji, where his second wife’s grandparents, Rev and Mrs Cross, were missionaries from 1835. One of the original streets is Oneata Street, named after another small Fijian Island, close to Lakeba. Benjamin Taylor was variously an entomologist, town clerk, Alderman and Mayor of Canterbury Council. The railway line was built to the neighbouring suburb of Belmore in 1895 and extended to Lakemba and beyond, in 1909. The station was built on Benjamin Taylor’s property and was named after his ‘Lakemba Cottage’.
The first school opened here as Belmore School in April 1869 and became known as Belmore South in September 1907 until it was changed to Lakemba Public School in June 1910. The post office opened on 1 July 1879.
Lakemba railway station is located on the Bankstown Line of the Sydney Trains network. The line was opened in 1895 and electrified in 1926.
