"What a shame"

Used to be a nice, quiet area. Now it's damn near impossible to get onto Raby Rd in peak hour without putting up a fight. I moved somewhere quieter and never looked back

"Beautiful Suburb to live in"

We have been here for three years now and we love it. We have fantastic neighbors and the houses are not on top of each other like they now are in new estates, wide streets and plenty of parking also helps.
It's quiet, green and leafy. The area is mainly families and retirees. Shops, medical, take away shops, child care centres and schools all close by.
Easy access to the M5 and buses to take you to the train station.
Great place to live.

"Leafy green scenic Raby"

Raby is a lovely suburb in the South West of Sydney. It's close enough to the city if you still need to commute there but far enough away to enjoy the serenity.
My favourite place is the Raby Sports Complex with the bike/walking track. It's such a lovely atmosphere with plenty of room for the kids to run around...oh and the dogs (there is a leash free area).
Raby chinese shop is yummo for a Friday night takeaway and everyone is friendly and welcoming.
There are lots of great schools in the area as well as the local pub, Woolworths just down the road and a short drive to Macarthur Square. Also, it's only a 30 min drive to the beaches at Wollongong and a short 10 min drive to historic Camden.
I highly recommend Raby to anyone.

"great family suburb and great place to live"

I have lived here my whole life and my parents were one of the first in the suburb so I know alot about it.
Lovely scenery, nice and hilly and lots of flora and fauna to enjoy.
The park with the sport complex are right at your doorstep with a bike track, outdoor gym and nice trees to take in the serenity as you are walking the dogs, saying hi to the friendly neighbours and enjoying a beer up at the Raby pub are just a few of the things I love about this suburb.

"Superb Scenic Hills View and Peaceful"

As a family we moved into the area 4 years ago. We have found the area to be extremely quiet, safe and convenient for a number of reasons. Shops, schools, parks and bus access is convenient. Residing just off the top end of MacDonald Drive is far enough not to hear the M5 traffic but close enough to enjoy the scenic hill views and the cows moooing! Its a delight to wake up too!
I could not think of living anywhere else!
