"a good lifestyle"

I lived in East Devonport in 2002-2004 in Elanora Place and found the people in that street to be a very friendly, helpful and quiet neighbours. If you needed help they were there to help. I have lived in 2 different states since then but still visit our ex-neighbours and the street is still as good now as it was then. The walking tracks are ideal for exercise and even though there are only a handful of shops they are adequate. The buses are good and if your energetic it is a good walk to the CBD. Yes there are some less than desirable people in that area but they are few and pop up everywhere even in elite areas. I found it a wonderful place to live overall.

"Coraki Street"

I have lived in Coraki street for over 20 years, and I have to disagree totally with johnnyboi. He portrays this street and the area in a very bad light, and it's not like that at all. The street is quiet and safe. Yes we have the odd hoon that leaves skid marks on the road, but doesn't most areas have that these days, with stupid young drivers on our roads thinking they are invincible? Apart from that the street is safe and quiet, and the neighbours are lovely. It was a housing commission area in the past, but that has changed. Apart from the odd rental, most of the houses are now privately owned, and quite a few of the homes have been renovated by the new owners.
