"Very quiet South Maroota"

Situated 72 kilometres north west of the Sydney CBD is South Maroota in the local government area of the Hills Shire and part of the Hills District. It has a small population of about 510 people.

It is a quiet rural community with houses on acreages. House prices are just under the $1 million mark. There are orchards in the area.

There is no school at South Maroota so children need to travel to go to school. Residents who work in the city need to be up early to get to work but what an area to come home to after a busy day at work.

South Maroota’s one claim to fame is the Pacific Park Motocross and Water-Skiing Park. This is situated on the banks of the Hawkesbury River and is about a 55 minute drive from the city. It is also a caravan and camping site with a shop providing essentials to the people who stay and visit. This park was the site of the 2004 Australian Motocross Championships. It offers trails for all levels of expertise – from the beginner to the professional.

For those who really like the peace and quiet and still be relatively close to the city South Maroota may be the place to have a look.
