"A suburb for families"

My family and I bought our first property and moved to the suburb five months ago. Werrington County is a small suburb but has everything you need - restaurants, supermarket and shops. On weekends we like to do a little trip to Penrith for the large mall.

Despite having moved here not long ago I feel that this is a suburb especially suited for families raising children and with pets. Our neighbours are friendly and we have already been to a few barbies at our neighbours’ place.

Talking of transport, I walk to the Werrington station to catch a train to Wynyard every morning - an easy 15 mins’ walk. The suburb feels quiet but safe in the evening. My husband drives the kids to school and then to work everyday.

"It’s definitely a safe suburb!"

I have lived in Werrington County for 4 years now and in St Mary’s for 2 years prior to that. I really disagree with the comments made by Joyce below. Our neighbours are all very friendly (and some are very wealthy), and I feel welcomed and very safe living here. The only downside is that the property here is more expensive, but I think it’s reflective of the quality of the houses and neighbourhood in general.

As a family of four (and a dog) we often take a short stroll to the nearby park and shopping village to buy our groceries. Have heard that there will be a shopping mall getting built in the next couple of years, which will make it even more fantastic.

"Not safe..."

I would not recommend anyone moving into this suburb - better off living around Kingswood/Mt Druitt.

peterb99 I have never lived in Kingswood or Mt Druitt but I completely disagree that Werrington County is unsafe.

"A Great Place For Everyone"

We have lived in the County for 30yrs. We love it. It's central to everything. Midway between St Marys and Penrith and more shops within walking distance. Good public transport, buses and trains. There are good schools for the kids. Werrington Lakes within walking distance and Ripples Swimming Centre a stones throw away. The streets are wide and the gardens are great for families.
