"Quiet and safe place to live"

My wife and I moved to Rooty Hill 2 years ago with the intent of starting family in a more country-like environment within 45 minutes in train to work in the city. The quiet leafy surrounds attracted us.
The huge parks and magnificent trees give a feeling of space and tranquility. It's like being in the country but close to the city!

Since arriving we've made friends quite easily in the local community and enjoy the more relaxed lifestyle, including access to nearby bush land reserves for mountain biking and hiking. There are lots of shopping options available with the new Marsden park shopping complex.

All round a great community and place to live to escape the feeling of living in a busy city suburb. A welcoming place for the country boy in me.

"Under rated & over acheived"

We bought our first home in Rooty Hill 10yrs ago, not by choice, but that is all we could afford at the time. We did not know anybody in the area so we took our chances and bought our home. The first thing we noticed was how quite and peaceful the area is. There is everything you could need in an area for singles and families alike.
Rooty Hill has ample parks and fields to exhaust the kids and many sporting clubs to keep them busy.
The M7/M4 connection makes travelling to most parts of Sydney (& beyond) relatively easy. Rooty Hill has its own train line with a reasonable public transport facility.
Rooty Hill RSL is one of Sydneys most renown RSL clubs with its own AMF bowling and laser skirmish to its own gym to the soon to be completed Indoor Aquatic and training centre.
This suburb is still very well priced with many young families flocking to the area.
All in all, we are very satisfied...
Pros
  • Peaceful
  • Still affordable
  • Close to everything

Cons
  • Needs more cafe's and nightlife
