"Country Feel with everything you'll ever need."
Many Ill mannered bogans, unfortunately. If you can tolerate that, or if you’re a bogan yourself, the mountain views are spectacular. Wasted on bogans! It feels like a large country town but everything you might ever need is available nearby. The demographic appears to be changing. One can only hope. Sydney is a snobby city and suffers from 'suburbism, snd unfortunately many of the locals here give credence to it. Penrith has had a reputation that many continue to reinforce. It doesn’t take money to have class. It’s about manners. With any luck a bit of multiculturalism mixed in here might tame these Australians giving our country a bad reputation. Otherwise, It's so green, the mountain views are beautiful and there's a growing 'arty' feel here, but nearer the mountains. Keep away from Kingswood. The car and the place. Not much in the way of night life but that suits me fine.

"Does not deserve reputation"
I do not live in Mt Druitt, but I worked there for a few years, and was brought into contact with some of the so-called worst offenders in the area. I do not agree that it is all that bad. There is a real village atmosphere about it. People all know each other and say hello. The people in the shops are friendly and down to earth. People seem to look out for each other.
