Liverpool, located 32 km south-west of the Sydney CBD, is the administrative seat of the local government area of the city of Liverpool.
Situated in the Cumberland Plain, the suburb is one of the oldest urban settlements in Australia. An agricultural centre until the 1950s, urban sprawl from the Cumberland Plain reached Liverpool and, soon, it developed into an outer suburb of metropolitan Sydney. In the 1960s, Housing Commission estates for low-income families sprouted following the launch of urban renewal programs in inner-city Sydney.
The majority of dwellings in the suburb comprises apartments, and the rest are townhouses and separate houses. The northern end of the area is home to high density residential apartments, while the southern end is the zone for high density commercial buildings.
Liverpool is developing fast and will soon be likened to Sydney CBD. It is a great place to live, with easy access to everything including shopping, entertainment, pubs, nightclubs, botanical parks, sporting facilities, schools, a teaching hospital, and more. It is the major city centre in South West Sydney, with Macquarie Street serving as the main strip lined with small cafes and stores. Shoppers will enjoy the offers at Westfield Liverpool at the northern end of the suburb, while the Liverpool Plaza sits between Macquarie Mall and Northumberland Street.
Families with school-aged children have several options for education and learning, with Liverpool offering both public and private schools. There are three public primary schools (Liverpool Public School, Liverpool West and Marsden Road Public Schools); and two public secondary schools (Liverpool Boys and Liverpool Girls). Private schools include Al Amanah College, All Saints Girls and Boys College and All Saints Primary School. There are also schools that offer post secondary education. One of the country’s largest libraries can also be found in Liverpool.
Liverpool has easy access to the Hume Highway, the M5 Highway and the Westlink M7 motorway. A railway station connects the suburb to the city and Campbelltown. On weekdays, there are train services to Parramatta and Schofields. For buses, there is a bus-only route along the Liverpool-Parramatta transitway.
Liverpool is the perfect suburb if you want a place away from the city that has plenty of amenities and opportunities, and a friendly community with a rich cultural diversity.
