"It depends on which part of Carlingford you live in"

It depends where you live in Carlingford. If you live closer to Carlingford Court, you land in the Hornsby Council. If you land closer to North Rocks and on the train station side of Pennant Hills Rd, you get The Hills Shire Council (one of the richest council's in NSW) and if you end up on the other side of Pennant Hills Rd closer to Telopea, you end up with Parramatta Council. If you get Hornsby or the Hills Shire Council, you're in the sweet. Streets are well maintained, no rubbish on the roa... Full review
