"Quiet small Town"

I lived in Scone about 4 years. I'm still working here.There is quiet and small town. There are 2 supermarkets Coles and Woolies. You can buy something in the shops, Target, reject shops and clothes shop. Some cafes are good. Many retire people and family live here. Most of them were friendly. The water is clean. Job is limited here.

"TURN AROUND, NOW!"

this place is a disaster. the people are rude & they gossip in such terrible ways. you will be told things about your character that are not true, if you do not fit their mould of 'whatever it takes, at anyone's expense'. this is not how to live life.
for me this place has been like living on another planet, in another universe. to try and understand where these people could possibly becoming from, is not possible. there is alot of denial & blame.
this is not homely or 7/10, this is wrong & you need to turn back now.

my score of 1 star is only because i couldnt make it 1/2 a star. its still poor though. dont do it to yourself.

"A town that's not what you think"

If you like swearing, bad mannered youth and young adults. Aggressive and arrogant mining employees and a place blind to its social ills then Scone NSW is for you.
Not only can you enjoy vastly over priced real estate and rental properties you can also fall in love with high unemployment rate and the town being flooded with crystal meth , cocaine ,mdma and herion.
If you come to stay to work on beautiful horse studs you can look forward to a 80 hr work week and get paid for 38 hrs take from me it's fantastic.
And if youre really lucky you can come home from work to a burgled house.

"Horse Capital of Australia"

Gorgeous rural town, with great cafes, terrific style and the first "real" rural town out of Sydney.

"Scone- Interesting scenery"

Known as the Horseracing capital of Australia with over 70 horse studs, Scone is located 255 kms North West of Sydney. Scone has some good historical buildings to see as well as the Scone Museum. Visit the Australian Stock Horse Museum and wonder through the arts and crafts shop. Don’t forget to visit the information centre and winery. In the area is the World heritage Listed Barrington Top and 15 Kms away is Lake Glenbawn where you can see the Museum of Natural Life, go for a bushwalk or have a picnic or BBQ at the facilities provided. Scone has good accommodation facilities and ample shopping.
