"Great suburb"

Just nice and quiet. Many parks and close to the city. I enjoy just the small parks. Anglo square and the cafes. It’s safe which is really important and nice bungalow homes. Not noisy or congested like hurstville or the east and west. Good balance

"Fantastic suburb"

It’s small and cosy. Leafy with no traffic congestion. Small cafes popping up and a new Aldi too. No huge apartment blocks which is a bonus. Nice bungalow federation homes and solid older style units makes it a draw card. Relatively well priced. Much nicer than congested inner west and overpriced eastern suburbs. Has everything you need. Beaches nearby. Parks, shops, cafes and 20 minutes to the cbd. Just a good all round safe suburb.

"A great suburb"

Carlton is a quiet, safe, leafy suburb with a village atmosphere. With a great selection of housing; beautiful federation and modern homes, quality apartment buildings. It's close to beaches, parks, major shopping hubs and the CBD is only 20 minutes by train or car. A great suburb to live in!

"Very underpriced suburb with abundance of amenities"

Once again, this suburb is located near the hearts of the St George area - Kogarah and Hurstville, but Carlton in itself is fighting back against the consumer rich duopoly with the convenience of a gym, a small stretch of restaurants of Railway Pde and abundance of parks and schools. Hurstville has slightly fallen behind its top counterpart, Kogarah, due to overcrowding and rapid gentrification, resulting in traffic congestion, which in itself, is non beneficial for the suburb. Kogarah is highly convenient equipped with a large scale hospital to parry back at Hurstville, and Rockdale is left flailing unfortunately in its gentrified almost urban landscape, with overly busy roads running through near the train station. Hence, Kogarah dominates. But Carlton snaps back, because it is a huge suburb, and it is nice to see it even extending into the title of Allawah, which is gradually dwindling. Overall, this suburb has virtually all you need at a non exorbitant price. In close propinquity to Beverley Park, which is idyllic for golf and all your leisure activities.

"Great Place to Live"

Carlton is a fantastic suburb situated in the St. George precinct, south of the CBD. It offers the complete lifestyle with cafes, parks, highly recommended schools, train station ( approximately 25 minutes to the city), a selection of shops and dining options and centrally positioned to the city, beaches and the airport.

Couple all of this with a safe, family friendly area and it's own Rugby League team, the St. George/ Illawarra Dragons, Carlton is a great place to live or invest.

"A quiet, safe suburb"

Carlton is a nice little suburb with a train station and a few shops. Nearby Kogarah and Hurstville are within easy reach for more shopping. Overall, a safe suburb and about a 20-25 minute drive/train to the city.

"Nice quiet little suburb"

I've lived in Caringbah for a long time and now I've lived in Carlton for over 2 years. Caringbah was nice but too far from the city via transport, the trains from Carlton are great (25 min to Town Hall) but they arrive every 30 min in off peak so I have to work around that (that was the same for Caringbah, so no loss there). I live alone so safety was important and Carlton feels quite safe, I haven't heard of anything bad happening here.I live near the train line but I actually don't hear it a lot, so its nice and quiet. My neighbours are a friendly bunch so I feel even safer!

Carlton doesn't have a whole lot in terms of anything (except a gym and some decent restaurants on the Railway Pde side, especially the Japanese place!), but Kogarah and Hurstville are 5 minutes away for all my shopping and entertainment needs.

The suburb itself is quieter on the Carlton Pde side, with more parks and leafier, although people still prefer the Railway Pde side (not sure why). Lots of families, old people and young couples live around here, so there aren't too many ruffians living about!

I've been very happy here, so what more can I say :). Kogarah would be better to get more trains, but it is more expensive. I think Carlton is a wonderful choice as it is still "affordable".

I believe that the Railway Pde side is more of a preference as there is a greater abundance of amenities extending outwards towards to the east. For instance, you have the park in the suburb's south east corner, which has more than adequate green space, and itself, is in close proximity to Jubilee Oval, and a very good local primary school. This side of the Railway line also contains Anglo Square, whereas I think you will find that the Railway Pde side only has access to these amenities towards Bexley. Bexley, in itself, however, is severely overcrowded, and the shopping strip is too far from the heart of Carlton. Additionally, while on the Railway Pde, you are geographically closer to top schools such as Sydney Technical High School, Bethany College and Hurstville Public School boosting the education sector, one can easily access the hospital and the heart of Kogarah, containing all necessary needs as you said.
Also, Kogarah is technically closer than Hurstville for much of the suburb I would imagine, but the issue with both of this suburbs where you can gain much essential needs is that they are slowly being gentrified and hence, overcrowding, particularly in Hurstville. Seemingly, it is witnessed to a lesser extent in Kogarah, but I would there is pedestrian and car traffic on Railway Pde and southern parts of Railway Pde Nth.
