Zanui 468

Summary: Highly centrally located relative to the rest of Sydney and very well-equipped in terms of amenities, Bankstown is also one of the highest-crime suburbs in Sydney that puts a dampening layer over what would be its otherwise positive conveniences. It’s well-connected and offers a reasonable price for its diverse range of property, while international dining is another positive – particularly for those who enjoy Vietnamese food.

Price is its biggest asset, as well as access to jobs and other varied suburbs right nearby, however there’s still a layer of tension here – particularly at its train station and immediate surrounds – that’s far from the most comfortable environment in the world to deal with on a daily basis.
