Sydney Neighbourhoods – Find Best Areas to Live in Sydney(2)

We list some areas about North of Sydney in last post. We will list more areas in this post, so that you can find your ideal property.

        

Western Sydney

 

Western Sydney is reputed to be the home of the Bogan.

Bogan is a word used by Australians and New Zealanders to describe a certain type of person.

A bogan is a person likely to sport a mullet hairstyle (the hair is short everywhere except for the back where it is shoulder length).

A bogan is also likely to own a Metallica T-shirt and to wear it whether the occasion is a rock concert or a wedding. When bogans are not racing their cars on suburban streets, they like to dismantle and reassemble them on their front lawns.

Western Sydney Facts

The average house price in Western Sydney ranges from about $650,000 – $750,000 in areas such as Blacktown and Penrith reaching $1,000,000 + in Baulkham Hills. In some suburbs, such as Baulkham Hills’s Annangrove, the average house commands a price in excess of $2 million. (House prices from late 2016.)

Western Sydney covers a very large area, and actually makes up the bulk of metropolitan Sydney.

Inner West Sydney is harder to stereotype than other areas of the city.

It is variously thought of as: trendy, lively, multicultural, arty and the haunt of drug-addicted burglars and car-thieves.
