"Quiet place and multi cultural"

Plumpton

Lived there for a couple of months in 2017. It is very clean, quiet and mainly has single and double storey well kept homes. It has a popular catholic school which is close to a public school and a private school. They are all close to the shopping centre. The centre has a woolies, Big W, cafés, KFC, Maccas etc which can be quite busy on the weekends so go early to get a good parking spot. There's a taxi rank at the centre. My suggestion with the centre is to avoid the medical centre (check reviews online) and try the new one at Marsden Park. It's worth the commute. Everything else at the shopping centre is great.

Plumpton is serviced by several buses to nearby train stations of Rooty Hill, Mount Druitt and Blacktown. There's quick access to the motorway. I haven't had any issues with traffic as I wasn't driving but I hear there can be some build up sometimes during peak hours.

Plumpton may not be entirely green and leafy but it has a park where locals hold birthdays, picnics etc

I didn't hear of any negative incidences while there and my friends and I could safely use public transport any time of day or night.

If looking for a public school it's best to avoid the ones in Mount Druitt. It's also advisable, if your kids are using public transport, to ensure they are not travelling with kids from schools with low values and poor discipline.

Plumpton is a great place to raise kids. It's main downside is you may need to travel further to find work and the commute to the city is quite long. Everything else is great!!
