Clean, green and beautifully kept, Oatlands is a magnet for families. Located in Sydney’s north-west on the outskirts of Parramatta, the area has become a highly sought-after enclave, thanks to the excellent private and public schools that are close at hand and the top-tier golf course, Oatlands Golf Club.
Oatlands is dominated by large family homes, and with the suburb sitting higher than its neighbours, most homes have a great outlook. In keeping with the family-friendly theme, the suburb is peppered with parks and playgrounds, such as Burnside Gollan Reserve, New Settlers Park and Treetop Park.
Oatlands Village and Burnside Shopping Village cater to everyday shopping needs, with a string of supermarkets, pharmacies, eateries, medical clinics, boutiques and beauty salons. There are more shopping, dining and entertainment options a 10-minute drive away in Parramatta.
The suburb is easily accessible by road and railway. It’s close to Victoria Road and major motorways like the M4 and M2, and buses run regularly in all directions. There is a train station just minutes away in Dundas, and more stations in Telopea, Rydalmere and Granville.
