If you’re seeking a home in Sydney, be sure to explore these amazing neighbourhoods: Strathfield, Abbotsford, Burwood, Homebush and Homebush West. A recent study concluded that these are the five best places to live in Sydney. All of these suburbs provide residents with an excellent quality of life, including access to high-quality schools, beautiful parks, and reliable public transportation.

1. Strathfield


Strathfield is one of the most conveniently located suburbs in Sydney when it comes to accessibility to almost everywhere else. It’s very convenient for individuals who want to explore all that Sydney has to offer on a regular basis, thanks to its proximity to almost everywhere else.

It is made up of wide, tree-lined avenues lined with huge clusters of contemporary homes, Victorian and Federation cottages, and California bungalows. It features a plethora of amenities and schools, as well as many different dining options (albeit they’re mostly Asian so not very diverse). It’s also a town of two extremes, where future residents have to decide between living in a more affordable but loud central area or opting for the quieter lifestyle by paying much more money for one of the suburb’s larger size homes.

Given that Strathfield is only 12 km from the city centre and has a plethora of local and nearby amenities, it’s no wonder the suburb is so sought-after by buyers. Check out houses for rent in Strathfield here.

2. Burwood
