"Friendly neighbourly community spirit"

I've lived in Black Rock for over 15 years. In that time I've established great friendships and I feel a real part of a community. Its a place where people know you without snooping into your business. Terrific for kids, great parks, sporting facilities and lets not forget the beach, If you're into fitness and a good healthy lifestyle this is the place to be.

"A real community"

Where everyone seems to know everyone. Walk down the street and people wave and say hello. You always bump into someone you know. Great to smell the bay and hear the water dancing on the beach. Lots of kids and families - really good community spirit and getting better all the time. Great local shops which are also always striving to do better - we even have our own micro-brewery now. Great cafe society with the bike riders stopping in for a quick coffee and a chat.
