"Padstow - the little secret suburb."

Padstow is a friendly suburb, trainline into the city ( 30 minutes ) and to Liverpool and a well run bus line that goes to the Shire. Close to National Parks and also has a great community spirit. Shops and cafes are always busy and staff know customers by their first name. We have a number of schools in the area that have dedicated staff and principals, both primary and secondary schools. Local Clubs support Anzac Day and lots of community activities, The highlight of the year is the local carols at Playford park followed by a spectacular fireworks display. Lots of local businesses have stalls on the night and its great to catch up with friends and neighbours over a wine.

"Central location with great schools & transport"

Central location with an easy 30 minute drive or less to many Sydney landmarks such as the beach, the city & major shopping centres such as Bankstown, Liverpool, Miranda, Parramatta & Macarthur.
Located on the T8 train line you can get an all-stops train to the Airport or the City. There are major bus-stops that can also take you to the Shire & through-out the area.
There are many school options, including Padstow Park, Padstow North, Padstow Heights, St Therese & Caroline Chisholm.
There is a metro Woolworths, but a short drive to a Coles & Woolworths located in Revesby. Many restaurants & cafes in the main strip.

"One of the best South Western Sydney suburbs."

Lived in Padstow and in Padstow Heights since 2014. Lovely little community not far from the amenities in Bankstown or Hurstville. Fairly decent sized suburb that's affordable by Sydney standards, with train and bus access to the city, Campbelltown/Liverpool area and buses to the Shire, St George, Bankstown and beyond. Crime rate is moderate, experiencing the occasional "sketchy" individuals wondering the main areas at night, but usually are not trouble. Have had robberies and murders occur since I've lived here, robberies nearby including rummaging through our car has occurred. The occasional street races across Henry Lawson Drive and the other major networks that go through Padstow can be irritating however. But, I have not once felt unsafe or uneasy wondering these streets at night, and these incidents are seldom and do not pose a threat to those who exercise basic common sense walking by yourself at night. Beautiful parks, friendly neighbours and locals, truly one of the best suburbs in an area known for the opposite. Padstow and Padstow Heights will truly surprise you! I love living here. 2211 represent! :)

"Near Canterbury Bankstown and St George border"

The only undesirable place to reside in here in Padstow would have to be north of the South Western Motorway, in which case you would be compelled to access your amenities via Punchbowl, which in comparison to Padstow, is... not good.

"Horrible"

Worst place I have ever lived! Horrible atmosphere, terrible neighbours, high crime rate! Driving always tail gating you and beeping at you when you’re doing the normal speed limit!

"Perfect Padstow"

A village atmosphere shopping centre where shop keepers still know a lot of customers on a first name basis!!!, Padstow offers a variety of restaurants, cafe's, banks, medical centre's and virtually all local services are available.
This originally was a very traditional working class suburb that has transformed itself and continues to be an excellent location to raise a family, live a life and enjoy everything that comes with it.
Located within 30 minutes of Sydney CBD ( outside of peak ) the peninsular suburb is surrounded by the Georges River, National & Local Park's, a combination of Primary schools with direct access to Menai, Bankstown, Liverpool and the St George Districts.
