"Hard to fit in"

I worked in Kellyville for 5 years with two babies and we really struggled to settle in. Perhaps a Sydney issue overall? People just don’t really wanna connect and don’t seem to friendly. It’s also a very hot suburb with less wind than other suburbs. Overall I didn’t like living here and the price didn’t justify what’s on offer at all. Would never move back here again

"Middle of nowhere, boring and hot"

Typical new estate, houses so close to each other they are almost touching. Almost all of the houses look the same, like living in a cookie cutter suburb. Lacks character, feel and anything interesting. Very far from everything.

No trees or greenery to be seen, hot as a furnace in summer, no shade and very little parklands. Very narrow streets and roads, which are unbearably busy, traffic is barely crawling along. Not close to decent public transport such as trains and buses to main work areas (CBD & Parramatta), owning a vehicle is a must.

Full of young bland families trying to get ahead, very little to do in area and surrounding suburbs, just like most new suburbs in Western Sydney, boring place to live. Best way to sum it up is expensive and boring!

Some of your perceptions might offend some but having lived here for 20 years your spot on.Kellyville has a complete lack of neighborhood character.

I grew up at the Hills in the 80s and hate the monoculture of Kellyville. Revolting, evil property developers killed off all the native wildlife years ago.

"Good for when the kids are small"

I moved here last year and it has generally been good. Very far from anything interesting and traffic to get to anywhere interesting is horrendous. On the flipside it's relatively affordable for a decent middle class suburb.

Public transport is horrendous, property crime ie break and enter is common and people are quite gloomy, probably due to their mortgage stress.

Once the kids are a bit older and need more than a backyard I'll be going back to middle ring or inner city suburbs.

"Yawn"

Kellyville is a very clean neighbourhood and fantastic for parents with multiple children as they can keep each other entertained at the beautiful parks on the area. The downside to this suburb is the distance from anything that is entertaining. The shopping centre is attractive but instead of having a department store, it has 3 supermarkets that rarely compete with each other on price. The suburb itself is comfortable, though underwhelming. Very little community spirit and every house looks like it was designed by the same firm. This superb has no heart...just a well manicured illusion.

"Inconvenient"

Kellyville is a beautiful suburb however it has very minimal facilities. Since it’s out west it is very cheap to live here. The suburb is VERY VERY faraway from the city which is very inconvenient. It’s pretty boring and basically has nothing to do. It does have some nice residential parks etc however it is very hard to live in a suburb far away from basically everything. Although it looks aesthetically pleasing that doesn’t cover anything since when looking for a friendly suburb the first thing people look for is convenience. In addition there are no reputated facilities here such as schools, hotels, restaurants, stadiums etc.

"This is becoming like Parramatta"

We are an elderly couple and have being living here for almost 28 years. This used to be a very calm and quiet suburb. But now the growth and subdivision has made the suburb very difficult to live. Lots of people from different cultures coming in and the peaceful and leafy suburb has now vanished.

Recently our car was sprayed graffiti when parked outside. Which never happened during the past 20 years. Very disappointed and looks like this is becoming the next Parramatta. We sold our house as we had no other option and planning to move to QLD. Very sad to see this happening to the place where we used to call home.

"There is nothing here"

Kellyville is one of the string of north west suburbs which has nothing, near to nothing and centre of nowhere. People bought huge houses starting from a decade and half back everyone with only one point in view. The railway line. Ask anyone and you will find them dreaming about the rail link, how when it finally becomes operational they can take the train to work, sell their huge houses which are already bought overpriced at much higher rates and settle down in life forever.

Hi KaronM : Currently looking to relocate from the UK & am considering Kellyville as one of our top two suburbs alongside Castle Hill. We have two children (5 & 13 months old) so good schools are an important factor - Do you have any recommendations ? Your review is also one of the most recent so I am assuming that you are still "Love Kellyville" - Do you have anymore opinions or insight one year on from your last post ? - Thank You so far !

None of the schools on Kellyville I would classify as excellent although they are decent. You need to look at the northern suburbs and north shore for the really good schools.

"What a great place to live"

After living in Kellyville for 14 years it is a delight to tell people how good it is as area to bring up children within a friendly neighbor hood. In fact it is a well kept secret in my opinion. With local shopping centers, "The village" of Kellyville and Rouse Hill/Castle Hill so close you want for nothing in retail therapy. A great business center in Bella Vista and Castle Hill you have access to big box retailers, car yards and auxiliary services. I can only recommend the schools that i have had direct association with through my children but have found Kellyville High, Kellyville Public and Sherwood Ridge Schools exceptional for public education institutions.
Public Transport has been an issue but after catching the bus from Castle Hill to the CBD in 50 mins, I think a lot in this area has and is improving.

"I had preconceived ideas about Kellyville, now I think its the best kept secret in Sydney for families!!"

Just moved in 6 months ago, due to the twins arrival which takes us to four kids. Moving from the inner west and having lived all over Sydney before I can openly admit I had preconceived ideas about Kellyville (leggo land / average place to live). Yes there is a leggo land here, but there's also a 13 year old part and a 30 to 40 year old part to Kellyville. Our home is 13 years old and fantastic.

I can say Kellyville has exceeded all my expectations by a mile, and has been the biggest surprise on the upside of the all the moves I have had in my life. Kellyville is the best place I have lived in for families. The neighbours are great, it's easy to live there with loads of space. Close to terriffic shopping centres (Rouse Hill and Castle Hill and Victoria Ave), we are central to it all. Everywhere caters for kids, from locals pubs with playgrounds and jumping castles to indoor play centres. My wife had similar concerns and has also been surprised, loves everything I mentioned above plus access to fresh fruit and veg from local farms and she socialises with our neighbours, our kids now play outside because of the all the other kids they can play with. Public Schools are great, thery are very strict with high standards.

Best kept secret in Sydney!!

And the travel, 40 to 50 minutes by car to Artarmon leaving at 7 am. My view traffic in Sydney is bad everywhere, leave early otherwise it does not matter where you live it takes over an hour!

"Nice area with friendly people and good local facilities"

We only recently moved into the area earlier this year, but cannot be happier with our decision. Our neighbourhood is clean and quiet, surrounded by quality homes and the people are friendly. Parks, shopping, gym etc are all available locally, as are good quality schools. Perfect area to bring up a young family.
If there was a downside, public transport and traffic getting in and out of the area isn't great. Whilst there is a regular bus service to the city, the lack of a train line is a short coming and does contribute to a fair amount of traffic congestion on the main arterial roads.

"A perfect place for families and retirees"

We have been in Kellyville for the last 10 years, when we moved in we had no houses around us but now it is built up and we have the best neighbours we could ever wish for, we watch out for each other and we regularly get together and have a great time, my daughter and her husband have also bought a house in the area and love it, so I think it is good for retirees and families, the shopping is very easy, but of course you must have a car as the only draw back is public transport or lack of it is appalling and the Govt have an awful lot to answer for.
We moved from the Eastern Suburbs, and though everything was so convenient there and the shopping was brilliant, I don't miss it one little bit and have made the most of things out here.

"Safe and quiet suburb - Friendly family oriented"

We have lived here since 2007 and must say overall it has been a good experience.

Travelling to the city for work everyday is a real grind but if you pick your times to travel is tolerable. Toll roads are probably the biggest letdown for anyone living in the Nth West but if you travel out of peak times the trip is an easy 40min drive.

As for the area, it is geared as a kid friendly area with plenty of places to take your kids. Taking a daily walk around the residential area is pleasant as the majority of homes are well cared for and maintained on quiet streets away from main traffic. There is also ample open space and creek reserve maintaining that bush aspect.

Yes I do agree about the 'McMansions' slogan of the area but like all suburbs there are pockets of custom homes of high to very high calibur certainly comparable to Castle Hills best pockets with the addition of the bush aspect.

"A safe family friendly area. The Hills district is one of few decent parts of Sydney"

Family friendly area. Lots of parks, playgrounds, sporting facilities and open space. Good choice of public and private schools. Great local shopping options from small local shops through to majors at Castle Hill and Rouse Hill. Great network of bike paths that make it safe to go for walks or rides with the family. Quite area that is a haven from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, yet only 32KM to the city centre. We find the local restaurants to be of a good standard with eat street areas at Castle Hill, Rouse Hill and Bella Vista. Local work opportunities with Norwest business Park and Macquarie Park. Bus transport to the City and surrounding areas is good, but the area would greatly benefit from a train line. Some people put the area down on the basis of over sized houses on top of each other. We came from the inner west of Sydney previously and can say that the houses there were tiny and much much more on top of one another. Here in Kellyville, we have a large family sized home, an inground pool and large grass area in the yard for the kids to play. Our house is in a nice tree lined street with a park and fantastic kids playground close by. We have much more space around us here then we ever had in the inner city.

"Family friendly suburb"

Kellyville is a fantastic suburb, especially so for young families. It offers a safe haven for raising children with quiet streets, friendly neighbours, beautiful schools and many sporting and recreational fields.

Kellyville sometimes gets bad publicity due to the so-called "McMansions" but I'm sure the people making these comments don't live in the area. The Hills area in general is a fabulous part of Sydney and given the choice to live anywhere else, I would definitely choose the Hills District.

"A great place to live envied by all"

Most of Kellyville is a relatively young suburb built around the smaller long standing Kellyville Village. It is bordered by modern suburbs with great facilities at Castle Hill, Beaumont Hills / Rouse Hill, Bella Vista and Glenhaven. Excellent shopping is provided by a combination of large retailers and smaller specialty shops at the close-by Castle Towers and the Rouse Hill Regional Centre shopping precincts. Grocery and convenience stores are provided in Kellyville by both Woolworths and Coles surrounded by a wide range of service and convenience stores. All locations offer a range of cafes, eateries and restaurants. Local clubs, pubs, restaurants, and cinemas provide opportunities for nightlife with some younger adults preferring to travel by express buses to the city clubs, theatres, and arenas.
Planners and developers have ensured all essential utilities (including recycled water for outdoor / toilet flushing), and reliable, high speed telecommunication facilities are available. There are plenty of parks and reserves, bike paths and indoor sporting facilities. Street plantings in the newer areas are approaching 10 years old and the canopy of trees is growing thicker. Gardens are usually well kept, neat and tidy.
Contrary to the urban myth, a range of housing and land sizes is available but most dwellings are free standing. New single storey houses are rare because most of the original landowners chose to maximise land use with two storey dwellings to leave sufficient space for swimming pools, large outdoor entertainment areas, and gardens for the children to play in. For young singles or couples, townhouses and units do exist around the public transport corridors serviced by private buses that utilise T-way or bus lanes to rail links or direct to the city, Castle Hill or Rouse Hill. Many of the older Californian bungalows are still occupied by their original owners who have now retired, and some of these are undergoing renovation by young families who recognise the value of the location and appreciate the large land sizes.
The area is well serviced by local GPs, medical specialists and a nearby state of the art private hospital at Norwest (Bella Vista). A range of reasonably new and well equipped public, Catholic and Anglican schools service the area. A wide range of summer and winter sports clubs ensure plenty of choice for children on the weekends.
The neighbourhood has a generally friendly and cooperative feel. Street Christmas parties and BBQs are common with children generally being the catalyst. Most take pride in their homes and gardens and would share a beer with their neighbour after mowing the yard or washing the car.
The only downside in my view is the difficulty that teenagers may face in travelling to the larger recognised universities (eg UNSW or Sydney). While not impossible, a heavy study load might be better handled by near campus accommodation.

"This suburb has made me hate Sydney!"

Takes forever to get to anywhere where you can find decent places to eat and boutique shopping! i come from melbourne and this suburb makes me feel sick its all about keeping up with the jones and who has a bigger plasma screens and the ugly houses are just a reflection of people's mentalities. Every second house is from homeworld and the houses are pakced in like sardines. The enourmous houses are just a waste and are unnecessary. The weather is really humid and hot, as you dont have any coastal breeze. It deppresses me taht this is what society wants!

Wow, how bad it must be for you to put up with a lack of sea breeze and poor mentalities. I hope that you are happy back in Mexico tending to your unicorns and butterflys and past the duress imposed upon your poor soul.

Global_Roamer

I used to live in the Inner West and I do agree with you about the lack of sophistication of the people and the area. I arrived here when there wasn't a decent place to buy a cappucino. It's much better now. However the homes are very comfortable even if they are McMansions but yes, you do need a pool out here!

JennyP

I totally agree! 9 month here and I'm crying to get out of this middle of nowhere ddesert! For what? The same price and distance of the lushikus green mountains and south coast???? Yuk. No privacy and the cigarette smoke of the neigh ours and soccer balls flying into oup heads is the worst. Anyone who likes this place has not lived much further or better.

melissaj3

Lol what is hilarious is you moving from the city of Melbourne to a suburban Sydney area and expecting it to be the same. Perhaps you're just a bit precious and can't compete hence why you think people here are all about keeping up with the joneses, because I certainly don't find it that way at all.

"McMansionville"

The houses in this area use up almost as much as possible for the square on the house, and leave almost no room for backyards and there is not much room between the houses either. Inside the houses though, they are huge, plenty of room for whatever you might need.

The shopping centre is small but adequate, has good take aways, coles or woolworths and not to far from Castle Towers.

A lot of young families live in the area, you can get a nice place with room in the house for a reasonable price. But the transport to anywhere is shocking, unless you drive. If you work in Norwest Business Park though you are laughing.

"The Suburbs"

Well... If you like to spend all weekend 'keeping up with the Jones', then this is the place for you!
Make sure your not too loud, as to upset the neighbours.
Make sure your grass is keep free of weeds.
And, remember... if you want to go anywhere exciting, it will cost you heaps in Tolls and Petrol.
Enjoy your life in the 'Burbs'.

"Mushrooming Kellyville"

Kellyville is a fast growing suburb in the north west of Sydney 36 kilometres from the CBD. It is in the Hills District of Sydney. Its population has grown from about 4,500 in 1996 to over 18,000 in 2006.

It enjoys the best of both worlds. Parts of Kellyville are semi-rural while other parts are suburban. There are quite a few housing estates offering modest modern houses to large affluent properties. Kellyville has as peaceful and relaxed atmosphere.

There are good shopping facilities with the Kellyville Plaza opened in 2003 and The Village a commercial strip along the Windsor Road.

The children of Kellyville are well catered for as regards schooling. There are four government and private (Catholic) primary schools, a government high school and a private high school. There is also a special needs school. Very young children are also looked after as there are numerous child care and pre school centres. All these schooling and day care facilities are needed as one third of the population of Kellyville is under the age of 18.

To support this growing population upgrades have been undertaken to the roads in the area. Windsor Road has been widened to four lanes which have greatly helped the flow of traffic in the area.

Kellyville is definitely a suburb for young married couples with small children.

"New development suburb"

Kellyville is one of the newer suburbs of Sydney. All the houses in Kellyville are brand new and all looking very nicely renovated. The streets are all newly paved and everything just seems to be in order. As a result a lot of families with kids have moved out this way, since the houses are slightly more affordable than living closer to the city and you get so much more land.

There is only really one road that leads into Kellyville and that is Windsor Rd. As a result it gets really jammed up during peak hour and there is no other way in! This can cause some to be absolutely crazy and some are happy to let the time pass by whilst waiting in their cars going home.
