I would avoid Rangeway. If your looking for a cheap areaWonthella and Waggrakine might be a bit more expensive but are much nicer places to live. Also parts of Geraldton like the area around Durlacher and Brede street are quite affordable and have much more potential than Rangeway. Beachlands is also a cheap area with lot's more potential being close to town with lots of nice new houses going up.
Depends on which area in Rangeway you are. There is hardly a good spot in Rangeway and it is also known as the 'bronx' of Geraldton. Most weekends there are parties, fights, and lots of noise and also a high rate of crime. It is also known as the drug dealing area. If a person sticks to themself it could be ok. There are nice houses there and considerably cheaper rent than compared to the rest of Geraldton. I have a friend who lives in the middle of Rangeway.
Every town has a 'bronx'. As for the rest of Geraldton, it is absolutely lovely! I absolutely love it. It is considerably safe, lots of things to do and see, a great community spirit, wonderful schools, great shopping and wonderful beaches!
