"Buxton a hidden gem"

Lived in Buxton for about 7 years. That is nearly 15 years ago now. However the town has retained its village atmosphere. Great place to bring up children and reasonable priced housing. I sort of wish I never left. However our house and yard were too small for children reaching teenage years. Plenty of nature and peace and quiet. The trade off is a drive of about 10 kms to get to major shopping centre. However there is a small shopping centre in village.
Pros
  • Quiet, Lots of bushland
  • Reasonable priced housing
  • Great community
Cons
  • Very close to bush fires
  • Limited public transport
  • No major shops in village

"Nice and Quiet among the trees"

Located on the edge of National Park, Buxton is a nice quiet village in the Wollondilly Shire. Affordability is good and homes range in age from 5-60 years old. There is one park with good facilities and a small cluster of shops (Newsagent, Takeaway). For major shopping, Picton and Tahmoor are approx 10mins away and Campbelltown as about 30mins.
