Marrickville Council is a Local Government Area (LGA) situated in the Inner West region of Sydney, Australia.

The area is bounded by Leichhardt to the north, the City of Sydney to the east and north-east, the City of Botany Bay to the south-east, the Rockdale to the south, Canterbury to the west, and Ashfield to the north-west.

While the area's background has traditionally been working-class, several waves of immigration and a continuing trend of gentrification have substantially influenced the demographics and character of the area. Marrickville also has a substantial student population, being situated relatively close to the University of Sydney and the University of Technology, Sydney.

According to Marrickville Council's website, "the area contains one of the highest percentages of artists, cultural workers and arts industries of any local government area in Australia."
