"Neat suburb"

I've grown up around the Blue Mountains and Penrith area, and moved back to area from North Sydney. Recently moved to a house in South Penrith. Aside from the minimal noise from the Northern Road and "rushing" car enthusiasts, I am really enjoying the suburb. It feels safe enough to walk the dogs at night, going by the care taken to maintain gardens our neighbours are house proud - usually a good sign on the rating of a town; which also means it's pretty. The closer you get to Penrith Station, the more it feels less safe to walk around at night. It doesn't have the same community I'm used to with North Sydney or the Blue Mountains, but so far so good.

"Your kids are safe & happy but so is mum & dad"

Have lived in Pindari Drive for over 20 years and love the place. The people, area, community are all fantastic. There are good schools both private and public, parks and a newly renovated shopping complex. Great place to live.
Pros

Cons
  • It gets hotter than Sydneys inner suburbs.

"South Penrith"

Its a great place for families - very close to shops, transport and schools whilst still being very quiet. There are a number of parks and sporting facilities and a great sense on community
