"Suprisingly a fantastic place to live"

We have been in Koonawarra for 10 years now. We were hesitant to purchase our home as Koonawarra did have a bit of a "reputation" but we have been blessed with great neighbours and a quiet street with loads of potential. We have never had any issues living here and think its great!
Pros
  • Houses are cheap compared to other parts of Dapto

"A safe place to walk the streets at night"

I lived on Fowlers rd Koonawarra for many years.I found it to be a very quiet and family orientated place to be in as a teenager.Me and my friends would pull a mattress out on the front lawn and camp under the stars at night and never have any trouble from anyone.It used to have a bad reputation,but i never understood why.You could always feel safe at night,the people where very friendly,the lake is just a short stroll away and the houses are cheap.My sister went to the Public school in Dapto,but after being bullied to much,she left and started at Koonawarra Public.She was delighted.The bullying stopped,and she began to flurish again.People in Koonawarra are not as materialistic as other places,and this reflects in the attitude of the children at the school.I say its the perfect place to raise a family
