"Pies"

People have different opinions. Clarendon Vale has its ups and downs, cons and pros, but whatever people say in my opinion it's a pretty friendly place. My neighbours are really friendly and have not interfered with my personal life. At times it gets noisy but I get through it. My neighbours own a boxing club or whatever so you can hear people punching boxing bags but I don't mind. The school is great, it has good teachers and a nice building. I'm still going through my teen's but so far I'm getting through it. I lived in this suburb for 12-13 years and the people here are great mentors and I have learned a lot of stuff from this community. Hopefully I've been more Optimistic then Pessimistic in this review so maybe read the other reviews to get a better insight on Clarendon Vale and it's Good and Bad days.

"Clarendon Vale"

At best, if you HAVE to live down there (and I feel sorry for those who have to), mind your own business, and you MIGHT be alright! Otherwise, don't carry personal belongings, expensive things around. Because it is a very good place for high crime rates (muggings, physical/verbal abuse, drug abuse/selling, other recreational underworld dealings).
Hooning, loud music and high crime rates mean you are not going to get peace and quiet down there. So look after yourself, stay safe and secure, because they are a law unto their own down there, as I do not know of any close police stations down there!
Most live on Centrelink benefits, are dole bludgers or are single mothers. Bad place to raise a family. Either that was the way they were brought up or they're just sick in the head. Honestly.
Also keep a very narrow-minded view of things as well. Around 99.99% of the population have been in prison, and the other .01% who have not is because numbers scare people off from even dobbing them in!
In other words...stay away. Any locals reading this would have stolen a PC from somewhere so watch out!
Many get money from drug dealings and selling out as a job. A high amount of underworld dealings go down there, and many crimes are not investigated because some do think they are above the law, and quite possibly are too because of potential retribution as there is a one-in, all-in pack, mob thing!

RogerR1 Clarendon Vale has its very bad points and its good points. It realy comes down to what street and neighbours you have. As for being rough it is not as rough as suburbs on the mainland most of the crime is from a number of families in the area who bring there kids up this way. It also has some really great people who live here. I have lived here for over 1 year and have had my house broken into once and my car stolen. I have also seen various cars being set on fire and houses as well. But it really does come down to what street you live on and who lives near you. I would not recommend this suburb for a young family. But a single person or a couple it would be ok the number one rule in this place is you seen no evil or hear no evil. I am also moving out

"Family friendly"

Regardless of the other posts, I have lived here nearly six years and the only trouble I have ever had is from people who do not live in the suburb. It is very family orientated and nearly everyone knows everyone. Never had a problem with bmx gangs, in fact, most kids get off the footpath if they see someone coming their way. There are more than one way in and out, street maps are great things. We have great internet access as well, and can access from our brought (not stolen) pc's. I have seven neighbours in total, all but one (who is a stay at home mum I think) have jobs. We live here because it is a descent size house and yard and for half of the cost of other suburbs, a great place to start out and for first home buyers. Sure there are some bad people, but you get that in even the best suburbs. I have never had a run in with anyone, people know my children's names, keep an eye out for them and say hello to you even if they don't know you that well. This suburb just needs to be given a chance.
Pros
  • Family friendly
Cons
  • Only one afterschool care

"Horrible, horrible area"

Personally I think Clarendon vale is great.... for theft and being mugged. Clarendon vale is a suburb you do not want to live in. My best friend lives there and numerous times has been beaten stolen from or scared stiff. It is quite a filthy place and not friendly.
Pros
  • is good for getting a bruise
  • being scared
  • good for car theft and insurance fraud
Cons
  • not friendly
  • not very good schools
  • noise
  • saftey
  • there is only 1 way in and out

"Dont live here"

If you value your vehicle and or your life it is not recommended to visit or live here, but if it is un-avoidable such as if your are looking for your mothers stolen car then make sure that all doors are locked and windows shut. Make sure that you are always aware of your surroundings as the mini bmx biker gangs have been known to strike at any time, muggings can take place over anything even a bag of hot chips as a friend of mine discovered.
Pros
  • good for car theft and insurance fraud
Cons
  • saftey
  • noise
  • there is only 1 way in and out
