"Not Nice"

This is a terrible suburb to live. When crimes are committed at your property the Police of the Blue Mountains and Penrith commands make NO effort to contact the actual victim of the Crime in fact the Officers of Penrith say lines to you like "Is that your story is it?" Well yes Officer it is and I have videos of the disgusting offenders but they don't want to hear that or contact you. Officers like that of Penrith perpetuate further distress and duress to victims. Then Police of Katoomba apparently find things but again still don't contact the victim and then once they discover they have not contacted a victim and that the victim has tried to contact them several times they use their police friends from the local Winmalee area to target and follow in their cars that person and attempt to fine them in anyway that they can. If this starts happening to you don't just take photos make sure that you write down with pen and paper all of the details and keep these on you and make copies and give them to other people so that the record doesn't just suddenly disappear. They do know lots across other commands and when you try to report further violence by people now living in Warrimoo they make that reporting as difficult as possible as they also happen to have connections to the violent person you are trying to report. Lodge complaints and although you are supposed to receive a response to what they are doing to you this apparently can take years or doesn't happen at all. Many members of the community are actually friends with these thieves too around Faulconbridge and Springwood; so goodluck to you if you are a decent person living in this community because otherwise if you are minding your own business have thieves attack your house and dare to try to report you may end up in the same scenario of being attacked by not only the criminals but the people meant to be helping the victim and their young child whom they have protected by reporting the situation and it is likely in some circumstances that the perpetrators are also friends with ex-partners and of whom are also friends with local law enforcement so the likelihood of your report being taken and actually investigated is minimal. If you don't have money to sue then your situation is also significantly harder as the victim. My suggestion if this starts happening to you is to move immediately and monitor your home as it is not necessarily guaranteed to stop at one home and particularly if the family attacking you happens to be very large. These actions include women too so don't think young women are not involved or old haggard women who cant mind their own business and want to hurt innocent people. These people have no morals and that is what is in these suburbs. Be careful not to let young women claiming to have lots of problems into your lives as they will steal and destroy your family. These young women are often perpetrators of violence and know the system well. They act and accept all sorts of charity like a victim whilst perpetuating violence and harming children. That's what is in this community. Some groups are of particular Indian nationality and they target people in this area as a form of reverse racism and harassment; stalking and annoying and antagonizing the victims and their families to further their crimes. Don't be fooled by their sweety soft voices behind close doors they are vicious and nasty with foul mouths and that sweet little demeanour very quickly changes. Report people like this and keep reporting. There group of young divorcees that try and link up with older couples divorcing so that they can sponge off the hardwork of them who actually saved whilst they were acting lazy and whilst claiming to be being a victim and yet meanwhile stalking and harassing your family members. They have no ethics at all.

"A nice place with mostly stuck up, rude sticky beaks living in it."

Excellent for living in a bush setting with wildlife around. Abundance of birds, etc, which is lovely. People will talk to you once, find out who you are, where you are from and then ignore you. I lived here for 10 months and did not make one friend, I have never had that issue anywhere else. I found people to be recluse, exclusive and not welcoming or friendly at all. Fantastic public school with outstanding teachers who really care. I would not recommend living here unless you already know people here and can easily enter a circle of friends, or you like to be alone. Because it is a very lonely place, if you have no family or friends nearby. People here stick to themselves and are very reluctant to let newcomers in. Other than that, a very pretty, peaceful place.

"Warrimoo, a great little village"

Warrimoo is a great little village... Driving along the highway, if not for the sign, you wouldn't even know it was there!! We moved from the Bankstown area so a real tree change for us... We moved mainly for our sanity and that of our furkids (5 border collies)....

Love the quiet nights... We are right near a school so sometimes it can be quite busy when there are activities at the school otherwise a great location...

Tennis Courts and footy fields across the road.. Great for exercise for us and the dogs!!

Made the right decision when we moved up here!!

angelai1 Hi am thinking of looking at a place. I work with animals (mainly dogs). Is it a dog friendly place? I love the idea of walks along the fire trails.

"Great little town, hidden from the burbs"

Warrimoo is a great little town, we moved here just 3 years ago, and to be honest, had never really known where it was, funny thing, is that we moved from Glenbrook , about 10 minutes down the highway.

You can drive past on the highway, and not realise that there are many many cute mountains cottages lining the roads, that sit just in front of the bush.

The neighbours are GREAT , without any hassels, they look out for your home, and pets ! Love that, when we both work !.

Our home has
Pros
  • atmosphere
  • large blocks
  • federation houses
  • community spirit
  • Natural evironment
  • train line
Cons
  • none, not all train stations have disabled access, and we are right in between 2 large stations ( not 5 minutes drive) that both have disabled access
  • no nightlife

"Home of Blinky Bill"

Warrimoo is a small town in the lower Blue Mountains. Connected to the city by train and the Great Western Highway, you can drive through it without ever noticing! That, however, is it's charm. The marjority of the suburb is quiet and leafy, with many houses backing on to bushland and valleys. These are a number of lowely walking tracks and lookout points to be enjoyed by outdoors types, and many streets have sidewalks, making the area largely wheelchair and pram-friendly (there is no access to the station by wheel chair - closest access in one suburb away at Blaxland). The area is well served for schools with the John Wycliffe christian school (Co-ed, K-12) on Rickard Rd, as well as a primary school. The local high school students largely attend Blaxland high, which is served by buses. The area is very family friendly and safe, ideal for families and those who prefer a quieter (and less expensive!) life. With nearby Blaxland shops, the area serves all the basic needs, and it is a fifteen mintute drive to nearby department stores and retail centres. Many of the residents are long-term and are quick to welcome newcomers and give you a smile.
