Five Dock

"Five Dock is a great inner west suburb"

Five Dock is a great inner west suburb that is neighbourhood friendly and less than 10kms, 10-15min drive to the CBD (non-peak). It has a vast array of food options (Italian, Japanese, Indian, Thai, and Chinese) available on the main strip. The suburb is a little noisy as it is under the flight path (a trait of the inner west), but the convenience factor of having everything at your finger tips (restaurants, cafes, child care, schools, banks, medical facility, gym, library, supermarket, bus stops, pretty much everything etc) outweighs this. Buses arrive every 5 mins in the morning delivering you to the city in approx 35-45mins - depending which part of town you need to get to. Best of all, Five Dock is close to the Bay Run and Birkenhead Shopping centre which makes the suburb a great lifestyle choice.

Five Dock is undervalued compared to all it's neighbouring suburbs. I expect property prices to rise over the next few following years as the suburb becomes more well known especially when the council is planning to gentrify and make the suburb more vibrant and commercially appealing.

I've been living in Five Dock for the past 3 months and love it!
