Absolutely agree Oatley is a welcoming community. It is very family orientated and has a lovely community feel. A smile goes such a long way and everyone is friendly.

Hi - it's getting increasingly multicultural (I grew up in Oatley West and now live here in my 30s). In particular, there's an increasing amount of Asian/Indian residents (but also other cultures). I now see ladies with hijabs, whereas I never saw them growing up. There are restaurants with lots of different cuisines (Lebanese, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Italian) so that increases the sense of multiculturalism. Regarding community, it's a welcoming community, provided you go out and engage with people. If you smile at people when walking along the street, they'll smile back. I've gotten a lot closer to my neighbours over the last couple of years just by stopping and having a chat with them. I've previously lived in the Eastern suburbs and hated how clicky it was - Oatley is nothing like that. There are other suburbs which are more multicultural and have more of a community feel (say, some areas in the Inner West), but Oatley definitely does well on both counts.
