Re: Baulkham Hills

Hills district is very bland though - all houses and nothing to do.

Transport is appalling

However - if you're happy enough looking at your house and admiring it then you'll be just fine.

Re: Sydneysiders, what % of your salary do you spend on your rent???

If you're earning upwards of 20,000 per month then I'd expect rent would be the least of your worries.
