"Great suburb to live"

We have been living in Toongabbie east for 4 years. It is nice and quiet and very central to most parts of Sydney. We have all the major roads at our door step for eg. M2, M7, M4 Great western highway, Cumberland highway, Old Windsor road, James Ruse drive and many others. We are also close to major Shopping centers eg. Parramatta Westfields, Blacktown and the smaller ones are Toongabbie, Pendle Hill, Seven Hills and Winston Hills. If you are a home renovator you are only 10 minutes away from 3 different Bunnings North Parramatta, Seven Hills and Buena Vista. Public transport is great eg. Walking distance to Pendle Hill or Toongabbie train station. Also close to bus T way. This area was a great find.

"My hometown - but there's a bad element crept in"

Toongabbie is what I know - my whole family lives here. But in the last few years the ethnic minorities have started fighting each other in the main street. Stick to the east side or Old Toongabbie and you can't go wrong.

"Excellent place to live - very homely!!!"

We have been living in this suburb for almost five years. The new shopping centre and restaurants have increased the value of this suburb. It's a very quiet and family friendly suburb. Expect the price to shoot up very soon!!!

"Typical suburb in Western Sydney"

Toongabbie is a suburb in Western Sydney. It has a lot of one story houses that sit on big lots of land. The houses here are low key but well maintained. Most of them have big backyards, garage and a front porch. The train station is along the Wentworthville, Girraween, Pendle Hill stretch so it actually has a rather frustrating timetable with only about two trains an hour servicing the station. There are shops around the station like your usual bakery and supermarket, but nothing exciting and the restaurants are all the usual grease serving take away shops. There is a Toongabbie leisure centre in the middle of Toongabbie with gym, tennis courts and squash courts so enthusiasts in the area have excellent sports facilities.
