Corowa makes top 10

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY JARRYD BARCA

The peo­ple of Aus­tralia have spo­ken. If you’re cur­rently liv­ing in Corowa then you’re mak­ing the right choice.

Corowa has of­fi­cially earned it­self a po­si­tion in the top 10 big­gest hot spots for fam­i­lies across all of New South Wales.

A sur­vey was con­ducted by Rent - a web­site ded­i­cated to rental prop­er­ties that de­liv­ers a sin­gle marketplace for renters, agents and land­lords - which re­sulted in al­most 57,000 re­views of in­di­vid­ual Aus­tralian suburbs.

Renters were asked to rate their sub­urb on a range of dif­fer­ent fea­tures, from pub­lic trans­port ac­ces­si­bil­ity to good cafes, restau­rants and safe fam­ily en­vi­ron­ments.

Corowa is, ac­cord­ing to the ex­perts, the ninth best town for fam­i­lies out of 3,772 New South Wales-based suburbs.

It’s an enor­mous and sur­pris­ing feat ac­cord­ing to Crack­er­jack Real Es­tate Man­ag­ing Part­ner Allen Bartlett, who told The Free Press he has seen a spike in in­ter­est sur­round­ing Corowa lately.

“Sim­ply, there has been more ac­tion, move­ment wise over the past six months. More peo­ple are look­ing to pur­chase in Corowa at the mo­ment,” Mr Bartlett told The Free Press.

“There is hon­estly a lack of range of homes to suit buy­ers that are cur­rently look­ing here.

“A lot of peo­ple con­sider Corowa to be one of Aus­tralia’s best kept se­crets. We are sur­rounded here by sub­stan­tial towns, we have the river right here … it’s the per­fect spot.

“For the size of the town, there is also a re­ally good amount of em­ploy­ment.”

Be­low is a list of the top 10 New South Wales hotspots for fam­i­lies:
