    Hi All

    I’m looking to visit an IP in Western Sydney (Blacktown Area) from here in WA

    Looking to book flights, hire vehicle etc

    The intent is to visit the property and property manager, have a look around the area and maybe even organise some works needed with the property in need of a general revamp

    Any tips on where to stay locally etc?

    Airbnb for staying locally.
    I hired a car form Robus rentals (parramatta) once and the prices were pretty cheap.
    You can get around without a hire car, if your PM can take you around the area.

    Parramatta is about 20 mins drive from b'town, I would recommend staying there and hiring a car from either there or the airport.

    From Parra, hop on the great western hwy, when you see the sign for blacktown turn right, drive 4 K's, you are now in blacktown :).

    If you don't want to hang out in Parra I'd stay somewhere with easy parking. If you're not hiring a car then Parra is easy to access accommodation. For places near Blacktown there is Altura which is at the Blacktown drive in and there's another place a bit closer to town. I think it's the Workers Club? You could go cheaper and stay in one of the local pubs. Good way to meet the locals :)
