"Quite and Nice suburb to bring up your children"

I find it very very convenient as M7 is right next to commute to my office is 10 mins which is great. Plumpton market place is so close by and all your basic needs will be met here. Also as an added bonus Marsden park Business park is close by and we get to visit Costco every week. All other stores are just right there!, I believe in fact people in Marsden park face a lot of traffic to exit out of Ellara to come out but from Plumpton since its the opposite way its so quick and easy.

Coming to neighborhood , I like everything about it. People are warm and welcoming and keep themselves. I will be soo happy to come out and take the car for a drive as I find very less traffic! There are some great childcare centers like Children first, Good start and schools like Richard Johnson etc. and I would say i couldn't ask for more!!!

Parks like Bungarribee, Nurragingy Resrve is right next and few other nature reserves are great here too which is a added bonus!

At last, I want to say one thing houses are way better looking, Build with Brick and really big than those old, shabby houses or the tiny townhouses build in so called very good suburbs!

"Quiet suburban area"

Quiet suburban area with everything you need. Great suburb to raise a family. Local shops available, parks and a lake, schools (private, public - primary and high school. No train station but buses available and arrive frequently. Houses have big backyard as well as front yard. Friendly neighbourhood and community. Lived here for 22 years and never experienced any violence

"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!!
