The Minto of old was not a popular suburb, after huge expanses of public housing and industrial land was added in the late 1960s.
Minto today, however, is a very different story, with the busy, friendly suburb already undergoing regeneration and marked as a great place to buy into now.
Just 48km south-west of Sydney's CBD, Minto Railway Station links with the airport and the city, making a suitable commuter's suburb.
It's also popular with young families, boasting plenty of shops and services, 2 high schools, 5 primary schools, and great sports facilities.
In 2014, the once rundown Minto Mall was fully refurbished and reopened, and now includes major retailers and franchises, such as Woolworths, Kmart, Priceline, Gloria Jeans and more.
