"On the Investment 'Up'"

Birrong is a suburb in the middle ring of Sydney.
Pleasant suburb and like other commentators have observed; a country town 'vibe' to it.
There are some less than pleasant folks moving into the suburb which will begin to tarnish the suburb.
It's well placed for transport proximity to the city and to Parramatta, so it's likely one of the suburbs to watch in 2010...

"A town that you could pick up and place in a country town setting and you wouldn't know the difference, everyone is extremely friendly and people just don't leave there until they die. Very hard to buy in this area let alone rent."

It has the best Bowling club in the state, good to have a laugh with the locals that have been dedicated to their little town since the early 40s. Birrong held the Masters games in late 2009 for the Bowls competition. Olympic size heated outdoor swimming pool, fantastic parks and sporting fields for soccer, rugby, netball. It also sells the most famous meat pies at it's local cake shop at a very reasonable price, you can also buy these at the local Bowling club. A place where everyone knows everyone.
Great town!
