Looking for feedback from locals living in Diamond Creek

Hi! I'm planning to purchase a plot from Everleigh drive estate in Diamond creek. I would like to get some feedback from anyone living in the area about the people, as in are they friendly and welcoming to other nationalites. I see some posts here saying they are closed off and unwelcoming to new people. Also, I would like some input in terms of schooling and transport. I do know the diamond creek railway station is about 5 -10 mins drive from the estate. Would like to get some insight in terms of it's frequency and punctuality. I love the suburb its gorgeous with breathtaking views, after reading some the comments here I'm in two minds whether it's good idea to move in specially if people living in the area are not happy with new people moving there. Appreciate your feedback. Thanks- Bud

People are very friendly here (I have lived in Diamo for 10 years). Don't be put off by comments from people who go to Coles and assume everyone is rude. Diamo is much like a country town, where locals tend to know each other a bit more closely than in the inner city, which could be considered snobby to outsiders. If you are concerned, maybe check out the schools and talk to some of the parents (they wont bite). The train is very close to the estate and there is a bike path you can take as a short cut. The trains are ok in peak times, but very infrequent outside of that. In saying that though, the trains are usually pretty quiet and trouble/crime free. The Chinese noodle shop 'Yings' mentioned above has closed BTW as the lady retired. Diamo overall is a fantastic place to raise a family and has a great balance of quiet, scenery, good coffee (at Piccallo) , bike paths, parks and as mentioned friendly locals. The only angst you may experience is locals peeved about increasing traffic due to the new developments (but the council cops all the blame for this anyway). All the best with your move.

I do not live in Diamond Creek myself but I do frequently go there to see my best friend. I haven't met anyone extremely rude and quite a few people seem nice. There is especially this lovely lady who runs a Chinese shop called Yin's. Personally I hope you get the/got the lot because it is a really nice place.
