"Shopping precinct - not too big or too small, the right size."

Having moved to Earlwood recently, I noted that the shopping area is actually pretty large, with a diverse range of food and services. Although many reviews suggest that the shopping precinct is small, this is what brings peace and seclusion in Earlwood. Unlike Marrickville which is more congested, lively, busier, fewer parking spots; Earlwood is a quiet, low density, leafy residential oasis hidden away on a mountain. The neighbours are friendly and there's a strong sense of community. Public transport is at ease with access to 2 railway lines + Tempe station, otherwise frequent city bus route through Homer and William Streets.
Pros
  • Great access to public transport
  • Big houses on big blocks
  • Loads of parks
  • Quiet and friendly
