Suburb Spotlight: Mount Austin


Mount Austin is one of Wagga’s more established suburbs, set between Turvey Park and Tolland and running down from Willan’s Hill Reserve to Glenfield Road. Fitzpatricks Real Estate has been selling houses and land in the suburb since it was established in the 1950s.

Former and present Housing NSW residences are a dominant feature of Mount Austin, with the wide range of solid brick, brick veneer, fibro and clad homes providing low cost housing alternatives in the inner Wagga area. The consistent popularity of Turvey Park with renovators of older homes has seen this trend spill out into some of the neighbouring Mount Austin houses, resulting in some very attractive homes suited to young couples and first home buyers.

Fernleigh Road, Bourke Street and Northcott Parade are the main arterials to the suburb, which is well provided with community services including Mount Austin High School (which is actually officially located in neighbouring Tolland), Mount Austin Primary School, the Haven Aged Care Community, French Fields and Anderson Oval and the Wiradjuri Walking Track. Mount Austin also benefits from a close proximity to the Tolland Shopping Centre, Turvey Tops Shopping Centre and Henschke Primary School.

The high standard of services close by make this area a good starting point for families, popular with renters and a potential investment area, with 72 properties sold by Wagga Wagga real estate agents in 20151.
