Figtree is a great family suburb to live in. It has great schools, a convenient shopping centre with Coles, Woolies & K-Mart (24hr). There are plenty of parks and safe footpaths, plus it has easy access to the freeway for commuting to Sydney. I've lived in Figtree for 15years and I've previously lived in Sydney too (Kensington, Roselands and Sylvania Waters) and I'd never move back. There is a range of good options for homes of various sizes & prices to suit your needs.
