"Cosy Concord West"

Have lived in area for just over two years on Queen St. Great suburb, safe and fairly quite. Great proximity to Sydney Olympic Park, public transport, schools, churches, main roads and there are several cafes and hairdressers in local shops. Usually do main shopping at North Strathfield or Rhodes. There is noise from freight trains screeching their brakes at night and occasionally there are people loitering out the front of my house on their way home from pub or late night train home. But if you live off Queen St this probably won't be a problem for you. A few hoons like to drive along Queen Street but you get this everywhere really. Parking can be difficult around train station during day and parking officers frequent the area. Be prepared to stand on train like sardines to city in peak hours. Lots of cyclists come through due to Sydney Olympic Park.
Pros
  • Close to sydney olympic park
  • convenient train station

"Good place to Buy, great coffee culture"

I bought recently in Concord West, and have never been happier.
I regularly go to the quality cafes in Victoria Ave. 'Three Spoons' is great value.
I also love the fact that the train station is so convenient. I think it will be a huge selling point in the future.
The Concord West Hotel is in my opinion the best 'local' pub in the inner west.
Overall, a great village atmosphere, what else can one ask for?
Pros
  • Cafe culture
  • convenient train station
  • best pub

"Suburb of the future"

Geographically excellent (middle of Sydney) Close to the city; Sydney Olympic Park, the M4; M5; Macquarie Park/Uni. Moving here has saved me at least 1-2 hours of travel time per day (10 hours a week). The rail access is also very good. I have enjoyed the Northern line. My kids goto very good schools locally and one via the train (10 mins). I would strongly recommend the area to other people. it has been a big surprise for us. A plus is the value of the houses never seems to go backwards - I guess thats a bonus; if you were ever going to sell ?
