Anyone in Blue Mountains/Penrith area?

Recommended Posts

Hi we are a family of 4 with 2 children aged 3 and 1 living in Blaxland near Penrith. Just wondered if there was anyone out there in the same area with children who fancied meeting up for a coffee?

Penrith Plaza is pretty good - lots of coffee shops and free parking. We live in Leonay at the mo and love it. The rental market out here is fierce! There are some really nice areas and some really horrendous areas. Are you renting or buying? Renting can take awhile depending on your budget and what you want for ya money!

I do miss a proper pub as just not the same here. A few good restaurants and some nice Thai places! Yum!

Argh Southern softie me - south of London! Leonay is lovely - leafy, quiet, and quite expensiveish to buy! We love our rental here and aim to buy next year! Glenmore Park is complete suburbia - one way in and one way out! Orchard Hills is nice but a little rural compared to other suburbs. All comes down to personal choice! Renting is difficult as so many people looking - very busy in Glenmore Park and Penrith because it's cheaper.More likely to get settled quicker in suburbs like Leonay, Emu Plains as not as close to Penrith! Be prepared to queue to look at houses and be treated like cattle as all goes on open homes! All good fun!!! Do you have any children?

Hi Mark - you're going for suburbia then? Some very posh areas in Glenmore Park! If you guys fancy a BBQ when you get here give us a yell! Good luck with the move!
