Minto, located 46 km south-west of Sydney CBD, is part of the local area of the city of Campbelltown and is in the Macarthur region.
Shortly after it was renamed from Campbellfield to Minto in 1874, development commenced and by the 1950s, it had expanded into a village with roughly 500 residents. A big parcel of land on the suburb’s east side became a site for government low-cost housing and its transformation from a village to a suburb was completed following the establishment of a major industrial estate in the area.
The suburb is transforming with new streets and new houses. A new housing estate, called One Minto, comprises private and social housing, surrounded by beautiful streetscapes, accessible to open spaces and infrastructures.
The newly refurbished and re-branded Minto Marketplace (formerly Minto Mall) offers Woolworths, Kmart and other major retailers, along with a variety of dining options.
There are five primary schools, Campbellfield Public School, Minto Public School, Sarah Redfern Public School, The Grange Public School and Alfaisal College. Pre-school to high school education for disabled children is offered at Passfield Park.
Minto is well connected by buses and trains. A railway station connects the suburb to Sydney Airport, Inner West and South Line and Cumberland Line on the Sydney Trains network. In addition, a small inland port links Minto to Port Botany by rail.
Minto is great for those who are looking for more affordable properties, that are still close enough to major suburbs. With access to amenities, like shops, dining, recreational facilities, good public transport and schools, Minto is an excellent choice for homebuyers and tenants.
