Surburb overview

Like its namesake city, Blacktown is a fast-growing prime location for property hunters and investors who work or conduct business in the Greater Western Sydney area. Lying within 34 kilometres of Sydney’s central business district, the suburb of Blacktown is accessible by train, via the Cumberland Line and North Shore, Northern and Western Line; bus or private vehicle from various points in its neighboring districts.

Amenities in Blacktown

Blacktown’s commercial district houses a growing number of state-run and private schools, the Blacktown Hospital, and the Westpoint Blacktown, its major retail hub. Groundbreaking developments are in the works that could trickle down to the major suburb, as part of the Blacktown City Council’s ambitions to give the city a million-dollar facelift.

No wonder Blacktown is welcoming a housing boom, as buyers scoop up property investments in the wake of its rapid urbanisation. A typical home or unit up for sale is likely to stay on the market for 60 days, a relatively short time for Australian real estate sales. The median home selling price is up by over 80 per cent in the last five years, while unit prices have surged by close to 70 per cent. Blacktown, however, is deemed as one of the few remaining areas in the city where rental costs are generally affordable.
