"City Slicker"

Moving to Springwood from surburbia was an absolute breath of fresh air. Springwood has an old fashioned community feel about it. Situated 15 mins from Penrith it is the first mountains setllement, it has lovely old mountains cottages along with a main street which has lovely old fashion shops with friendly staff. It has the convenience of a railway station in the main street.

As far as the nessessaties go it has banks and supermarkets etc, so there is no need to leave the local community if you dont want to, everything is there !!!

As it is situated in the heart of the World heritage listed national park there are many bush walks with fresh mountain air. The climate is one of the most temperate in the world.
If you need to have a meal or a cold beverage there is a variety of clubs pubs and cafes. One of its best features is its safe old fashion feel, its like stepping back in time to the good old days. As you can see I love it.
