"Wilton - small village adjacent to Bingarra Gorge (new development)"

Wilton is a small village 20 mins south of the Macarthur area. Very little facilities however attracted us due to its quiet and safe location. We have lived here for 13 years. Our kids went to the local public schools by bus ie in Picton. The area has unfortunately, dropped in standard over the last few years. Possibly this is partly to due to a nearby estate (Bingarra Gorge) which is much bigger and newer than the Wilton village. The village has a lot older houses from estates etc and are going very cheap and attracting less desirable people. With the local council serving such a large area with limited funds and staff its becoming a less desirable place to live. In addition to small police station in nearby Picton isn't even open at night. In comparison to other nearby areas, quieter in general but if you get a noisy neighbour you're on your own. Crime rate is lower than Macarthur area but so are facilities, ie shops, medical centre 15 kms away. There is no real public transport. A bus goes to Picton twice a day that's it.
Pros
  • Low crime
  • Mostly quiet
  • Clean
Cons
  • Few facilities
  • No transport
  • Isolated
