"A hidden gem with lots going for it"

I have lived in Emu Plains almost 20 years, and must say this must be the most underrated area near Sydney. Leafy, large blocks, mountain views, very safe and very low crime, convenient to everything. Shops , schools and railway all within walking distance (or bus if you prefer), great age mix of people. Train only 55 minutes from the city (and you get a comfy seat!), Blue Mountains on your back doorstep. Great selection of restaurants and the river with its new bridge. Everything you could ever want just over the river at Penrith, but you don’t have to put up with the huddle and bustle. I guess if your a party animal it’s not the best, then again, that’s what makes it great for families, professionals and retirees alike.

I wouldn’t live anywhere else!

"Emu plains, a hidden gem close to everything"

What a fantastic area emu plains really is, better value than Blaxland and Glenbrook, and much better value than south Penrith, it's close to all the real shopping centres, and even has its own shopping centre with Woolies and Aldi. Emu plains is blessed with this fantastic shopping centre which is never to crowded or over populated , it even has its own river walk and abundant hikes for the fitness/hikers too,..it's amazing to think that as soon as you cross that bridge from Penrith and enter into emu plains you are all of a sudden in a Leafy unspoiled family friendly estate with great size house blocks and no further continuous over supplied rabbit Warren houses with backyards the size of a hall cupboard.. please? Emu plains is a definite next big thing, especially once that airport takes off literally? Emu plains is a safe hidden gem of an area that has everything you need and more, with loads of potential and wealth for people looking for a great area to invest in...or even better buy a lovely home and live in a wonderful area with a touch of class....love emu plains always feel safe, and that's the most important thing in this day and age

"Emu plains is a Fantastic place to live, safe, and a very good area to bring up a family. Lived here for twenty years"

Emu plains is a fantastic area to live and to buy a home, it really is a sort after in the Penrith district to live and buy, it is very close to Penrith shopping too with easy access to fast trains to the city. I have lived in emu plains for twenty years and work in the city and I have never been more happy living here. Before emu plains I lived in Eastwood near the city and I can tell you now emu plains is a much safer area to live, even though The emu plains property prices are on the way up l would still pay the same price they are asking in the city just to live in emu plains. so close to glenbrook and mountains for many picnics and walks, the river walk at emu plains is just fantastic for families and fitness people, my kids while young use to go down to the river and fish and always catch something, mullet, carp and sometimes trout and always had a great time by the river on the family row boat. I won't be selling anytime in the near future this is my home and I am very happy here.

"Thomo"

Lived in emu plains for only 9 months now, although lived in North cranebrook and south Penrith for twenty years. i have been to emu plains quite a bit through the years and thought it would be nice to buy a home and live in emu plains one day, well anyway Am I happier living in emu plains, not really..why! Well I will tell you why it is a quite sort of area and feels quite safe in most parts I must admit, but to me it seems a lonely sort of place with nothing to do but to travel to the shopping centre and battle your way through a strange assortment of people of all kinds, elderly, young and disorientated, and your middle class, and your guaranteed family of gronks? I don't know why but it does, a lot of older people and a lot of older homes too. Emu plains feels to me such an out dated area with a good woollies and Aldies and miles down the road you have one Irish pub. If you had no shops in emu plain you would be pissed at the pub most of the time playing pokies, what would be the point of living in emu plains if we had no shops because I don't drink or play pokies so what would I do? Probably live in Penrith plaza most of the time, You can still reach the river on the other side. Sorry to you all but I do really think emu plains is way over priced and way overrated and for the price tag you would think that your living in castle hill or Dural etc etc nice qiuite area but I don't know????? Not for the price tag it's ridiculous that's for sure.

Rentals in Emu Plains

"Family Friendly"

I was a child raised in Emu Plains. I also spent my first years living out of home in the area. It is a very family oriented suburb, tucked neatly at the foot of the blue mountains. The river and the parks are great to walk, play and picnic in. There is a selection of public and private schools to choose from. The shopping facilities are basic, but adequate for stocking up the pantry. I felt pretty safe there as a kid, and also as a young adult. O'Donoghue's is about the only venue slightly resembling nightlife, so if you want to party then get out of there. I remember the Thai Restaurant near the river being quite delicious. I hear word that these days there's also a few niche coffee and chocolate shops popping up on Bathurst road that cater to a fancy palate. I've tried the coffee on a recent visit and it was very nice. The only con I can remember was trying to get home from work in Penrith everyday. It was often a choice of a) bottle neck on the M4 or b) bottleneck on the Great Western Highway bridge.

"Emu Plains - beautiful spot near river and mountains."

Emu Plains is in western Sydney on the banks of the Nepean River at the foot of the Blue Mountains. Emus Plains is basically a residential area with good quality homes. There is a good shopping centre called Centro Lennox and there are a number of very good schools. Sports facilities are great in this area with many playing fields, a beautiful golf course, swimming, Little Athletics etc. There are plenty of accommodations options including hotel and motels and the Emu Plains Caravan Park. Emu Plains, being on the western side of the Nepean River is only a short drive across the bridge to all the amenities of Penrith including the Penrith Panthers World of Entertainment.
