"Belmore - suburban life with heart and character !"

I moved from Burwood to Belmore because Belmore is what burwood used to be about 15 years ago. Belmore still has heart and character. About 14km from the city, it was one of the few areas left close to the city that I could afford and I don't regret it one bit ! I left burwood due to all the high-rises, traffic congestion and the fact that there are so many people there now. I chose Belmore because my parents are still in Burwood and now I am only 9 minutes by car and yet can still enjoy quiet suburban life.

Pros:
*The village feel of the shopping strip - cafes, restaurants, bakeries, small family owned businesses who remember your name - reminds me of marrickville/rozelle
*Train station within walking distance - soon to be upgraded to Metro standards by 2024.
* The newly refurbished and expanded Bulldogs Leauges Club.
* Very multicultural, used to be a "greek neighbourhood" but now along with the greeks we have lebanese, chinese, australians and koreans.
* Very central to everything - not much difference in driving times when I lived in Burwood. Close to strathfield shops and campsie shops (which is where i do most my shopping)
* The cooks river cycling path (to cronulla) is very close to my place now.
* Neighbours are nice, one is greek and one is from Mauritius.
* Feels safe in the streets. Very family oriented.

Cons:
*Not many good private schools in belmore itself (need to go to Strathfield/Burwood/ Croydon for that).
*Not as many parks as other suburbs - but Rudd park is the closest to walk to (but that's in belfield not belmore).
*There is the not so good areas of belmore (the side closer to lakemba/punchbowl and generally south of canterbury road which is too far from the station).
But even this is changing now as more younger families move in and the area is experiencing gentrification due to the new metro corridor. The best streets in belmore would be the areas nearest to belfield/campsie/earlwood as these are the more expensive suburbs.

"Belmore - Moving On Up!!!"

Belmore is a up & coming area. It still has the old-fashioned appeal of lots of indivdual shops rather than chain-stores, and this to me means personalised serviced by locals who know and remember you and your preferences when shopping. There are many fresh produce shops - butchers, green-grocers, many bakeries, seafood, specialised boutique supermarkets as well as health professionals, services such Post Offices, Banks, Newsagency, TAB, Solicitors, Hairdressers and light industrial such as mechanics etc. Burwood has also a lot of cosmopolitan eateries, a full range from your local take-away, to intimate cafes to ethnic restaurants. And there are a couple of clubs (Belmore RSL and Canterbury Leagues Club) and pubs. Transport is excellent, there is a train station in the middle of the shopping strip and buses also service Burwood Road.

Canterbury Council is investing big in the local shopping strip. Having already re-paved most of one side of the road in expensive modern large tiles, they are currently renovating the opposite side and also installing outside eating areas and new street furniture - all helping the great cafe culture that is evolving in Burwood Road.

It's not as busy as most inner-city shopping strips - you can safely cross the road - but it's just as good and interesting. The shopping is amazing, the locals really friendly. It's only 10-15 to Roselands or Campsie major shopping centres if you are after a Department Store too, so you do get the best of both worlds.

Watch out, Belmore is making it's mark!

"Close to city and very affordable!"

I love living in Belmore, have lived here for over 10 years now since moving from the Eastern suburbs, Ive never had a problem and neighbours are friendly. I love the central location of this suburb its 14km from the city so you can drive to the CBD in 20mins, bus and train services, close to M5, drive to the airport in 15mins. It is a very convienient location and close to everything. Its a few kilometers away from the inner west without the price tag but with much bigger blocks of land larger streets with plenty of street parking definately great for families who still want to stay close to the CBD. It is still affordable now but I suspect it will be the new innerwest in the near future.
Pros
  • Close to city
  • Close to airport
  • Canterbury Leagues club
  • Great shopping

"Home to the mighty Bulldogs"

Belmore is a quaint family orientated suburb and carry’s an aura of days gone by, it is located 15Km South West of Sydney C.B.D in the city Canterbury

The main street (Burwood Road)is home to many small business with the large Greek and Lebanese communities reflecting this.
You’ll find Greek cake shops, butchers, fruit shops Lebanese charcoal chicken and various others, many of the shop buildings are period art-deco style which conger up images of yesteryear, Belmore certainly has that old world charm.
The Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs (NRL rugby League team) Leagues club is located in the heart of town and provides a enormous amount of entertainment
Belmore is a quiet part of suburbia where you can purchase modest accommodation at reasonable prices, currently the median house price is $534,000(2010)
With many Californian Bungalows, older style units and villa homes The suburb definitely caters for modest living no need to spend a million Dollars here.
Transport is good with a large Train Station and buses that will deliver you to most parts of Sydney.
If you are after a buzzing metropolis then Belmore isn’t for you, but on the other hand if you are looking to live in the outer suburbs and have dreams of owning your own home complete with white picket fence at a price that won’t break the bank then have a close look at Belmore.

"A great sense of community"

I love living in Belmore!
I have lived here a year and live in a unit in the heart of Belmore.
I have also lived a few other places in the inner west: Summer Hill, Hurlstone Park and Dulwich Hill. I would rank them in that order (Belmore first) based mostly on a community atmosphere and friendliness of the people. Belmore has the best restaurants and food shops of any of the places I have lived, and its cheap! There are a few great cafes, 2 fruit shops, 3 butchers, 2 bakeries, 2 cake shops :) many restaurants to choose from and it doesn't feel too busy here either.
And its only a 5 min drive to woolworths, 10 mins to aldi, if you need it.
There are plenty of parks and outdoor spaces to walk/run.
Less roaches than Summer Hill and Ashfield!
All in all my favourite place to live :)

"Burwood Road"

Driving through Burwood Road, Belmore shops, get prepared to go four wheel driving. When is that road ever going to be fixed? The same applies to the part of Kingsgrove Road that runs through Belmore.
