Villawood

Villawood, situated within the postcode 2163, is a growing western suburb of Sydney, 25 kilometres west of the Sydney Central Business District (CBD), and is part of both the City of Canterbury-Bankstown Council and Fairfield City Council.

Was once nicknamed ‘The Bronx’, the suburb of Villawood is undergoing a massive transformation of new apartment developments, retail and major infrastructure upgrades. The majority of homes are typical suburban houses, with medium density housing near business hubs. 

Large industrial sites, such as the development of Western Sydney Airport, have been drawn to the area by land availability, providing more work opportunities and attracting new residents due to its low property prices. Transport to the CBD is a short 40-minute drive or just under an hour by train, but many residents are choosing to work locally and skip the city entirely.

THE BEST OF VILLAWOOD

Located in Western Sydney, just 8km south of Parramatta CBD and 6km from Cabramatta CBD, Villawood lies within easy reach, presenting a relaxed village living and everyday convenience. 

It is a peaceful suburb that is close to everything. A 10-15 minute trip to Bankstown or a 20 minute drive down Woodville Road to Parramatta, Sydney’s second CBD, will bring you to a massive shopping district.

Villawood is a multicultural neighbourhood with a diverse population, primarily Vietnamese, Lebanese and Australian. The early residents’ children and grandchildren are moving in, prioritising proximity to family over more prestigious locales. 

The main residents include independent youths, older and established couples, and families in their mid-thirties make up the majority of the residents

Villawood is a peaceful and friendly, fast growing suburb in Western Sydney and new projects are helping to shape urban transformation in the town centre. 

For the price, it offers an unbeatable location. Prepare yourself for a day of shopping and delicious eateries at a low price! Small but complete, you can easily locate fresh poultry at the local butcher (where the butcher knows you by name), value fruits and vegetables from the market and your all-time favourites ALDI, Bunnings and Officeworks are just down the street!
