"Quiet suburb in the heart of the Blue Mountains."

I lived in Winmalee for 5 years until recently and found it to be a quiet, leafy area where neighbours keep to themselves. The main problem here is that the morning drive to Springwood which is about 4km can take up to 25 minutes. Something really needs to be done to widen Hawkesbury road and improve access onto the Highway. The two roundabouts at Springwood only make things worse. Another issue is that most of Hawkesbury Road is a school zone. Other than that It was a nice place though property values have fallen in recent years which works well for buyers but not for sellers. The rates are steep, about twice what I'm now paying in Brisbane and the Local Council is autocratic and Left leaning which may appeal to a handful of people but not the majority. The bushfires last summer didn't reach Winmalee, but like the rest of the Blue Mountains they are something to consider if you are looking to move here.

"Abuse by police and people in the community against family members"

They try and make the real reviews of these suburbs not appear because the police try to hide the facts from the people. The community members engage in constant abuses against certain families - Do not move to this area until the police answer the questions as to why they do nothing to assist in constant abuse of people

"demographics"

Am very surprised to see Winmalee assessed as 40% families, 40% retirees and 20% couples. A trip through the local shopping centre would suggest otherwise. With 3 Primary schools and 2 High schools in the area it would seem this suggested balance is not correct.
