Meet My Suburb - Family Friendly Baulkham Hills

by Rebecca (follow)
Meet My Suburb (10)     
Baulkham Hills is a brilliant family friendly suburb, as it has loads of parks, schools and places to eat out. It is located in the leafy Hills District of Sydney approximately 31 kms north west of the city centre. A bus trip in off peak conditions will take about 30 minutes to the city. Baulkham Hills is located within easy access to the shopping, entertainment and business hubs of Castle Hill and Parramatta.
