    Family of 4 moving to Baulkham Hills/Castle Hill areas

    Cant really comment on glenwood as i dont know to much about it but is fairly close to where i am.... 1. The public schools here work on catchment areas. My 8 year old son goes to Barnier Public School and it is fantastic... It is in Quakers Hill although i am in the ponds area (just the way the catchment area is)... The other public i know is good is Rouse Hill... 2. Not sure about travel to sydney but there are Tways and train station fairly close to the areas your looking and i know there is a bus service about every ten mins to the city... Driving i have no clue... 3. If your looking for shopping centres most are accessable by car and they tend to be in main suberbs... There are many cycle paths around the best ones seem to be in the newer areas, although the newer areas dont tend to have the major shopping centres, just a few shops... There are parks everywhere... Hope that helps some

    Parramatta Advice

    Stanhope gardens is lovely, also the ponds, kellyville ridge, kellyville, rouse hill.... Cant really go wrong with any of them... In terms of travel... Train goes from quakers hill (not as bad as everyone says) and there is a TWay bus service close by to all these places. Most people drive to the bus or train station and leave cars there.... Hope this helps some...

    Reasonably priced household items in Sydney

    thanks for this i found it very helpful.... I think if argos open up over here they would make a killing.... White goods are rediculously price even in the cheaper shops.... I also heard that next deliver over here but when i went online they do not offer the full catalogue. I agree that target and kmart are great... they also have best for less for clothes but today i bought x2 shorts x3 t-shirts (basics for school) and it came to $60 = £40 (nearly)... Think primark (would cost approx £15) they would make a killing to. I know that you shouldn't compare as we get paid in $ but i think that things are more expensive over here but agree that not x4 times the price that some people would like to tell you... it is hard not to compare as at the moment we are living on our savings as hubby has not had first monthly pay yet..... We went to the mean fidler (rouse hill) for sunday lunch and what a bargin $34 for four of us... They have loadsa adult and kids entertainment.... Excellent value for money and a great day out.
