Little Jakarta - Sydney

The neighbourhood of Kingsford, in Sydney's southeast, is a major hub for Sydney's Indonesian community, earning the nickname of "Little Jakarta". Kingsford is also home to sizeable Greek, Chinese and Malaysian communities, as well as being home to many students from the nearby University of New South Wales.

I've never heard Kingsford being described as "Little Jakarta"

It is one of those forgotten areas and not a particularly nice spot of Sydney

It's not a particularly ugly neighbourhood, although many of the 1990s apartment blocks have not aged well.
