"A great place to live in"

Liverpool is growing faster and will be soon one of the best & expensive city to live in. Forget all comments in past. Liverpool is changing, soon it will be compared with Sydney CBD. Believe me in future you will see this city on a richest surburb & safest list, and that day is not far. New upcoming surburbs & apartments in and around Liverpool are worth investing now, or you will regret in future.
When I first came from UK people would not recommend me this surburb. But I started sharing with one of my Italian mate in this surburb, never came across any violence till this day. Sometimes it's good to explore areas yourself then to follow others instructions.
Funny thing about crazy people is they say surburbs close to Sydney CBD are good just because they are expensive. But what about drugs, brothels, abuse, unsafe night life around CBD, how can you rate them as safe & great .
It's just media misguiding people. Use your own thinking, invest in Liverpool now or you will miss the chance forever.
And if you are worried about schools there are best schools in the surburbs which has given Doctors, CEO's, Lawyers, Teachers & other great Professionals to this country.
Only thing counts is your child's capacity, rest all is fake.

"South western hub"

Have lived here for a couple of years, and like any major suburb in Sydney it has its good & bad sides. If you're looking to rent, there is a a large selection of units in the area. As others have mentioned, avoid Speed Street. A number of reasons why: the street parking is shocking, the units are quite old, & quite a few first floor units have bars on the windows (never a good sign). However units in this street are the cheapest in the area. Nagle Street is another one that looks overcrowded & dodgy. I'm in Riverpark Drive, which is quite a nice, friendly area. The Meriton built unit blocks here are generally 2 bedders & a decent size with resident access to indoor pool/spa and tennis courts. There is a little convenience store & a park/playground at the end of the street bordering the Georges River. Added bonus is its reasonably quiet, and only 10 min walk to the local public school & the Liverpool CBD.
It's a highly multicultural area & most people live harmoniously side by side. Middle Eastern, Indian, Asian & African make up the predominate population. This also means there is a great choice of international food & shopping in the area. The biggest concern would be those residents with alcohol & drug problems, which are apparent around places such as the mall at Liverpool Plaza, the railway station & the pubs. As others have suggested walking around Liverpool at night may be dangerous but hey, what part of Sydney isn't?
Medical facilities are plentiful & there is the local hospital available.
Parking! Oooh, it's a shocker here! Most of it metered & despite the many carparks/street parking it's often competitive to get a spot.
It's not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm happy here.

"Liverpool isn't great at all. A low income area that has recently gone up in price."

Liverpool is basically a bit of a hole. Aside from a TAFE and a shopping center it's very dull and uninteresting. Most people who live here are low income earners and the area itself is known for allot of petty brake ins, theft and other crime. I never felt safe here and I come from Bankstown - which is a really tough skinned place to live. People here range from druggies, to students, to crazies and trash. The only up side is that it's cheap and there is a clear reason for that.

I would avoid this place at all costs, even living around it isn't that great. Liverpool is the toilet of Sydney.

"Growing opportunities and diversity of cultures"

Definitely over stated as having a bad name, though I wouldnt walk around at night time. There are a lot of immigrants here, and as a result some real community spirit. There is definitely a problem with drugs as a lot of people have moved here from other areas such as Cabramatta. If you're smart and cautious there are some nice parts to this suburb. Westfield is very modern and has a lot of shopping variety but hard for parking on weekends. What is lacking is greenery. Some streets have been done up and have trees, and Bigge Park is quite nice, but overall there aren't many places to escape to unless you travel to nearby lakes or rivers in other suburbs. There are a few large businesses and seems to be a growing area of employment for professionals.

"Multicultural society!"

Probably the only place in Sydney where people are nicer than potrayed, and where individuals work hard and help out one another in hte community. It may be unsafe at night, then again not everyone would walk alone in the streets. Since i have lived in a few streets, I must say the end part of Castlereagh Street is the quietest part of the town, where there is pleanty of parking (which does not need to be payed for) and it is reasoonably priced. Schools are preety good, having attended one myself, and its up to the student to study, and do what they want, not like a private school where everyone is pushed to exceed their capabilities.
Overall very good place! However would not recommend to snobs living on the coast, who do not understand multiculturlism and say bad stuff about the suburb ( at least we are all down to earth, and try our hardest to make a good standard of living for our families).

"Not very nice"

Positives
Good transport
Hospital
Large shopping area
Multicultural hub


Not very nice experiences
...from the elderly men that spit on the footpaths
...to the alcoholics and junkies walking the outdoor malls
...to the boy racers and the loud music thinking they are on a drag strip in front of Westfields
...to the horse mounted police patrolling Liverpool on a Thursday night shopping as if waiting for a riot
...to the kids that think that fun is throwing full cans of soft-drinks in the middle of shoppers with mothers with prams and babies

Not a place i would recommend .... pop down to Macarthur Square 20 mins if you need to shop as it is a much nicer experience

"Good transport links, close to hospital, shopping, schools"

I worked in Liverpool in the past (within the last few years). Unfortunately I have a somewhat negative opinion of the suburb. It does not seem safe at night. Good points include good access to public transport, with a major train station and the T-Way. Shopping is convenient with the Westfield in Liverpool, the shops in the Plaza and main strip. Liverpool Hospital is also located there. Another point to note is that parking is horrendous, mostly due to mainly 2 hr or less parking restrictions. Visitors and staff are always circling to find parking near the hospital. There is free parking in Westfield for 3hrs.

"The establishing area."

Liverpool is a great place for the establishing and growing family that wants to take the full thing out of their lifestyle

Everything is generally good and you can establish that in the ratings and its perfect for kids, just stay away from speed st and the rest.

"The Next Parramatta"

There are two sides to liverpool..Good and Bad, For the good crowd its best to stick around the westfeilds..avoid places like Speed st and others near it..Liverpool is the best place ive ever lived in..

People there are ither nice or just keep to themselves,being a young woman myself, I feel quite safe walking to work on a daily basis..Never had any probems - Ever.

With Pubs,Nightclubs, Endless shopping,Train station,T-way, Tafe, Public and Private Hospital, countless Medical Centres and parks, schools and day cares...I Recommend liverpool cbd for singles,couples and the growing family...It can be a little too quick and hetic for older persons...But thats a personal choice..

Just like ANY other place in the world..Its best not to wonder around the streets alone at night...and any "normal person" knows that all train stations are dangerous especially at night..Sydney city is great but just the same as liverpool can have its loonies wondering around..This is no reason to give up and look somewhere else.

Anyone can live happily in this growing city..Only the people with their noses pointed to the sky and expectations floating up with the clouds are not going to like the place..But then again thats life - Youll always get "one of those' People that are old and grumpy and will find anything to pick on..Liverpool is full real people that are down to earth..just like me and you.Give a dirty - get one back..Give a smile - Get one back...simple.

Ive lived in Liverpool for a long time and just like many others like myself - We've never had a problem with anyone or anything...Hsc scores are a personal matter, if Your kids are smart and want to achieve somthing in life, Im pretty sure they will, no matter what school you put them in!!

Ive been living away from Liverpool to try out other areas to see which would be best to buy and live in for good..But nothing has come close to the happiness that Liverpool had created for me..Im pleased to say that im comming back soon and im totally over the moon about it!!

"A sorry tale of a sorry city."

It is unfortunate that it comes to this, but as of late life in Liverpool is just not the same.

The socio-cultural "melting pot", is a subvert and almost paradorical jab at a racially tense area. If one is to walk the streets of this small-ish "city", you will be able to see what I mean. Walking through Moore St as the night approaches will give you a glimpse at the downtrodden rubbish that blows into this city. Or perhaps catch some of the fine (yet somewhat tardy) public transport to the other satellite holes (Miller, Ashcroft, Sadleir, Greenvalley) and watch as you are taken on a tour of drug addicts nodding off on the seat next to you, or old drunkards swearing at young children about a lack of "r'pect".

But distancing oneself from the mere subjective feelings of such, what of the more observable wonders of this wonderful city? The two public highschools, Liverpool Boys and Liverpool Girls are sorry centers of "Education", with the boys school being particularly bad. The HSC results of 2008 and utterly shocking, with barely a few students scraping it into University. The local Westfield Shopping Village (or 'Westies' if you are an intoxicated local) is a wonderful place to do shopping if you want an air of faux style surrounding you. I am a male, but many female friends do find it rather uncomfortable to walk around Westfield (or anywhere in Liverpool for that matter) without gaining the attention of some parthetic low-life. Many people I know are instructed by their parents to not go on the street at night; yes, people living in fear in such a "wonderful" little place.

There are some positive points about the Liverpool, NSW, though. Food is cheap-ish, and the Asian supermarket in Westfields (V-Plus), are brilliant places to get food and the like. If you go to the train station expect the sight of a hoddie-clad teen being searched by police while their cute little doggie sniffs at your crotch. Worry not though, this is supposed to make you feel "safe". Another honourable mention about the glory of this fine place is the fact that there are MANY bus services to take you to better parts of Sydney.

Don't take my word for it. Come and sample Liverpool life for yourself. But don't come during midday, when all the shops are open and the junkies are at their minimum, no. Stow away the jewellery and the nice watch, and take a gentle stroll around Forbes St, Moore St, Northumberland St as the sun begins to dip below the horizon and have a blast with the locals as they try and make off with your small change.

Loulou.

m1991 Haha quiet an author mate! May i add to your pathetic comment, that i graduated for Liverpool Girls' High School and at the age of 21 am finishing my masters degree! Its always up to the individual to study. Also, yes they may be a lot of drugs on the street, but it happens everywhere, only difference between us and the Eastern Suburbs, is that they have money and can cover up their addiction! Get out if you are such a hater, clearly you do not deserve to be part of a good community

"The heart of southwest Sydney"

Liverpool is the epitome of multiculturalism in Sydney. It is a melting pot where different cultures live next to each other. It is quite a big city with many businesses around this area. There is a cinema and a massive Westfield for all your shopping needs.

The houses in Liverpool tend to be more affordable compared to other areas of Sydney. Rent prices are cheaper too due to its distance from the city. Liverpool is a good fifty minutes drive to the city and almost an hour's train ride away. Liverpool is also very well connected by public buses and there are many T-ways around the area to make sure that the buses do not get stuck in traffic.

In recent years, more and more residential units are sprawling up in Liverpool. Despite this, there are still many houses around the area. It is a working class suburb and it is home to The Liverpool Catholic Club. For the working family, Liverpool is an affordable suburb with amenities and convenient public transport.
