"Well established suburb with spacious houses and backyards"

I like Bradbury because it is close to the train station so you don't need to drive to the city, has good schools, a good public swimming pool, nearby shopping centres and the closeness to the easy links to Sydney, Southern Highlands, the beaches etc. It also offers reasonable rentals, closeness to TAFE and Uni and job opportunities.
Pros
  • I see that there are many local sporting events and areas where people can engage in sporting activities.
  • There are a couple of clubs. Art gallery and markets.
Cons
  • Not sure, probably being about 50from Sydney CBD (actually it is quite good if you work and study locally)

"Nice quiet suburb"

We moved from St Marys, after 10 years living in around the western suburbs to Hilly, leafy Bradbury, the best move we made. Both my husband and I work in Baulkham Hills and enjoy the feeling we get when we drive into Campbelltown to head home.Campbelltown and some of its surrounding suburbs still have that wide open spaces and I lived in Kurrajong for 15 years whilst growing up. We have been here since 2006. Our family is expanding and we have to either extend or sell our house, but there is one thing for sure we will not leave the wonderful suburb we now call home.

"Great place to be"

I have lived here for 8yrs, coming from the sutherland shire. My kids enjoy their sports and school here in Bradbury. Even if we sell we will purchase again in Bradbury as we LOVE IT HERE.

"A leafy suburb tucked just around the corner from the City of Campbelltown"

I grew up in Bradbury, moved to the city and then have come back as a home owner just over 11 years ago.

We love the leafy streets, the bird life, the peace and quiet of the suburb. Friendly neighbours, child friendly parks and good walking paths mean that its ideal for families.

All this plus we have access within minutes to great shopping centres, cinemas, restaurants, art gallery, public library, train station, etc. What else could we want?

"A Hidden Gem"

It always amazes me that Bradbury has remained a secret for so long. It's quiet, but SO close to the hub of town and everything you need. It's within a 5 minute radius of Macarthur Square, Campbelltown Mall, The Art Gallery and Chinese Gardens, Campbelltown Catholic Club, Rydges, The Cube Entertainment Centre, Aquafit and Bradbury Swimming Pool. Public and private hospitals, and specialist medical centres are close by. Greater Union Cinemas (including Gold Class) and Dumaresq Street Cinemas are easily accessible. Bradbury has a great little community shopping centre, including Foodworks, a medical centre and friendly neighbourhood newsagent, butcher, bakery, video store, eateries etc. There is a gymnasium and great Pre-School. People have been known to pretend to live in Bradbury, so that their children can have the opportunity of attending our excellent local school, Bradbury Public, which includes fantastic teachers and an Opportunity Class. There are many beautiful leafy streets in Bradbury to walk your dog, jog and generally enjoy passing lovely, well-kept gardens while getting fit. So many long-standing residents love their homes in Bradbury and take great pride in their gardens. If you have to get away (although why would you want to?), Wollongong's beaches are an easy 1/2 hour drive away, with almost no traffic lights!! (I've lived in Bradbury for over 20 years, unlike the person who left the negative review.) It's only a matter of time before the secret is out and Bradbury will no longer be an affordable suburban jewel.

"Bradbury"

Bradbury is good place to live. Westfield shopping center and train station is not too far. I have been living at Bradbury with my children for years without problems.

PVan I'm glad you're gone Syd09. Bradbury is looking even better since you left.

Syd09 I hope you stay there PVan, the area needs as many close eyed people as it can get. It's a part of Campbelltown that should be avoided. You can keep your housing commission and men in wifebeaters, I'm much happier now I'm closer to the city. Hope you're enjoying being on the fringes.
