4 reasons why Quirindi is a great place to live
Whether you’re thinking of retiring to the country, running a farm or raising a young family, Quirindi and the Liverpool Plains region is the perfect place to be. Read on for our top 4 reasons why this beautiful area is a fantastic place to buy or rent property.
Sense of community
There’s a real sense of community in New South Wales country towns, and Quirindi is certainly no exception. The Show Society’s annual Spring Show, held every year on the second weekend in September, showcases our area at its very best with so much to see and do over a huge weekend. There are also lots of opportunities for locals to get involved and make a difference in our community – check out the upcoming Quirindi Canter Fun Run on April 6th, which will help Youngcare support young people with special needs in our community. Quirindi, Werris Creek and the friendly villages across Liverpool Plains Shire really show the true heart and community spirit of country towns.
The cost of living and real estate in major cities is becoming more expensive year by year. Sydney’s median house price has leapt 15% in the past 12 months to a staggering $775,000; in Newcastle, the median house price is $528,000. Imagine the possibilities when you compare this to Quirindi, with homes at a median price of $228,000. The opportunity to live a country lifestyle in a house your family can grow into is one of the best things about moving to our area.
Fantastic for kids
Quirindi is a great place for families – a safe, friendly country town with so many opportunities for kids. There are heaps of options for kids to get active and make new friends. The Quirindi Basketball junior competition starts on 2nd May, or try out one of the youth programs at the YMCA Recreation Centre like ‘Junior Knuckle-Up’, a fun, kids-only kickboxing activity after school on Thursdays. There are a number of excellent schools in the area, such as Quirindi High School, St Joseph’s Primary School and Quirindi Pre-School Kindergarten, just to name a few!
In Quirindi, locals experience all the benefits of living in a regional centre with excellent amenities while still retaining the wonderful qualities of a country town. The town itself is peaceful and pleasant with great restaurants and cafes. Dip your feet into the gentle Quirindi Creek or ride a bike on the Cycle Path from the leafy RSL Park to Rose Lee Park. Drive out to the recreation area at Quipolly Dam to go fishing, have a picnic and visit the famous bird hide. Take advantage of a free weekend with a round of golf at the Quirindi RSL Golf Club and enjoy an afternoon at the Bowling Club in either Quirindi or Werris Creek. There’s so much to do here in the great outdoors – you’ll love living the rural lifestyle.
