"Como station attendant"

A big shout out to the attendant at Como station today 120 pm, 21 march 2017. The service was way way beyond expectation - helping me with the opal card, reminding me to tap on and then giving me your water as the train was coming. Thought of a job as Head of Transport? Thanks again.

"A lovely haven by the river"

I grew up in Como and think it is an absolutely wonderful place to raise children. It is a very pretty, leafy green area with great schools, parks and recreational facilities and close to the larger shopping areas of Jannali, Miranda and Taren Point. It also has the advantage that it is on a rail line that is only about 30-40 minutes from the CBD and very close to the great beaches of Cronulla. The only downside is that it is on the south side of the Georges River and rather remote by road to the city, airport and the large arterial freeways such as the M4 or M5. Unfortunately, Como does not have the lively, trendy restaurant scene that is abundant in other waterside areas such as Oatley, however, it has one of the best pubs in Sydney. Como Pub is a classic historical pub set right on the river with great food and an incomparable ambience! Right now is the right time to purchase a house at Como as the prices are almost half that of Oatley (across the river). Como is on the cusp of being a boom suburb and now is the perfect time to get a good buy in this beautiful suburb before prices will (inevitably) skyrocket when people "discover" what a really beautiful place it is. I'm sure, though, that the locals want to keep it as a secret for as long as possible .... !!
