Mascot Review

Introduction

Mascot is located 7 kilometres south of the Sydney central business district and is one of the administrative centers of the Bayside Council. Mascot is a good friendly suburb that has close access to the beaches. It has all the amenities and is also the base for Sydney airport. Wait! Before you think, that’s a downside, it’s important to note that the sound of the aircraft is not deafening here, and neither does it shake the houses. In fact, it is a visual delight for children.

This suburb is a melting pot that consists of people from different cultures and backgrounds. It boasts of its very own, comprehensive shopping strip. This is dotted with many shopping and dining options.

Mascot is also just ten minutes away from other shopping & restaurant destinations like Newtown, Alexandria, Marrickville, Surry Hills, Kingsford and Eastgardens.

It has close proximity to the beaches in the eastern suburb. That’s a big plus. The council here maintains the parks, the open landscape very well and the house owners are very proud of their beautiful neighborhood. Eastlakes shopping center, here, is undergoing renovation and redevelopment. This will hugely benefit the residents of Mascot and other surrounding areas.

Mascot has city center, airport and beaches in close vicinity. It has all the amenities like shopping centers, medical clinics, schools and day care centers. It is a friendly, well maintained suburb.


Benefits
