Top Three Affordable & Quiet Suburbs in NSW

In recent years, NSW suburbs have become the hub of development. So, it comes as no surprise that so many Kiwis are flocking to and growing their roots in them. Most of the time, they’re the cleanest, safest and friendliest places to be.

However, not all suburbs are made the same, and some aren’t as affordable, or that good to live in when compared to others. To help you choose the very best one, we’ll be listing our top three favourite suburbs in NSW.



With a population of around 5,000, as well as plenty of greenery all around, Fletcher is the perfect, quaint place to live. Moreover, despite being in close proximity (16km) to Newcastle CBD, the suburb has managed to stay small and safe. Not to mention, there are plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops here, allowing you to have the best of both worlds.

One more thing that Fletcher has going for it is affordable real estate, whether you want to rent an apartment or purchase a home. The reason behind this is that there’s a lot of ongoing development in the area, allowing residents to live in a quiet, peaceful place at a fraction of the cost.

So, whether you’re a young working professional, retiree, or part of a family, you’ll surely fit into Fletcher’s amazing community.



Chisholm is an up and coming suburb that sits 23km from Newcastle and 7km from Maitland. According to the 2016 census, the city has a tiny population estimated at 1,500 people — however, this will likely change in the near future. 

In 2011, the suburb embarked on a transformation and built enough housing for 15,000 new residents. Since then, thanks to the beautiful landscape and affordable real estate, people have been flocking to Chisholm. 

Additionally, even Chisholm land for sale still boasts affordable prices, allowing you to build your own home from scratch, or invest in great real estate opportunities. 

So, people from all walks of life, young families, working professionals and retirees are all attracted to the area. Moreover, because there are still new houses and buildings being built, there are still plenty of residents that can’t wait to call the suburb home.


Peregian Springs

Peregian Springs is a beautiful, quiet, well-kept suburb in the Sunshine Coast Region. Currently, an estimated 7,000 people call this suburb home, and this number is estimated to increase in the future.

The community is built according to a master plan, which includes independent units, apartment complexes as well as a retirement village. Some of the amenities in Peregian Springs include a large-scale housing estate and a huge shopping centre. So, all sorts of people from various backgrounds flock here, searching for a peaceful, well-balanced lifestyle.

Peregian Springs also puts a premium on preserving natural spaces, so its residents can enjoy untainted nature and well-kept parks. Not to mention, the suburb even has its own rainwater-powered irrigation system.
