Compared to where? I'm originally from St. Louis, MO and I laugh at folks who say Victoria Street in Richmond is unsafe. Pish posh. It's perfectly safe. I've lived here in Richmond for almost three years (very near Victoria St) and am quite confident to walk or ride my bike home at night by myself or with my daughter who is 2 years old (I can't say the same about StL where I was mugged a block from my house at 9 pm). Just be smart, be aware and don't be naive, it's safe but it is still a big city--while there isn't much crime in Melbourne in general, no one is immune. So to sum it up in one sentence: Richmond is quite safe and a lovely place to live! Hooray!

AdamS Hi MirandaRose,

Thanks for the reply, very helpful. I've spent quite a bit of time in Richmond now and I think you have summed it up nicely. Be aware and don't be naive - exactly right.

There are pockets of Richmond that look riskier than others but then you get the prestige areas up towards Kew.
