Farrer is amazing! I've lived here since I was 9, I am now 19 and I can say it is such a wonderful place. Farrer Primary is a great school and the streets are safe. I could walk home (5-10min) every day. Average for public transport but close to the main roads so you can jump on a direct bus if you don't mind taking a small hike. Close to woolworths and there is a new IGA, cafe, pie shop, hairdresser and beauty salon at the local shops.
