"Don't want to leave"

My young family and I have lived in Cameron Park for 4 years and love it here. We never had had security issues and find the neighbours friendly and willing to help. The bus stops out in front of our house and there are several shopping centres within 10 minutes. Daycare is an issue but that is Newcastle-wide. Not for young couples as socially there isn't much but definitely recommend to families and retirees.
Pros
  • safe and sound
  • great shopping options
  • neighbourhood spirit
Cons
  • lack of daycare
Recommended for
  • Families with kids
  • Retirees

"Not what I was expecting :("

Broken into within 9 months of moving here, next door was broken into twice before it was finished being built. Our other neighbour had their car vandalised soon after moving in. Noisy trail bikes riding up & down the footpaths & roads all weekend & sometimes during the week. P plate hoons flying up the main roads with the doof doof blaring. No medical centres in the area that bulk bill, mosquitos constantly eating you alive in spring & summer. 1 way in & 1 way out.
Pros
  • Great place for hoons & wanna-be Evil Kneivels
Cons
  • Not safe, lock your doors at all times & have an alarm.
  • Eaten alive by mosquitos
