"Quiet streets but close to shopping centers"

A good suburb if you want a quite place to live yet be close to shopping and transport. People seem to look after their yards and the streets rarely have rubbish. Bus and train are easy transport options.
Pros
  • clean streets
  • rail trainsport
  • close to shopping
  • Quite, leafy heritage homes

"hell on earth"

very noisy unsafe, clubs open very late into the small hours where yobs pass by your house lob broken glass into your driveway. and shout causing public disturbances on a regular basis. Yobbos and delinquents hang around the deli, library, pubs and in particular the Parole and probation office located in Brisbane Street.
Pros
  • none
Cons
  • everything
kurtsy
kurtsy But Brisbane Street is not in Sadliers Crossing. Shouldn't this really be a review for West Ipswich, or Ipswich central?

dlee I strongly disagree with this. Sadliers Crossing is very quiet with no nightclubs or late businesses nearby. It's a very old area with nice quiet streets. Northern obviously doesn't know his areas. The area he described is definitely the CBD, and not all the time. With the advent of Police cameras everywhere even these problems have toned done a lot.

"Fantastic place to live"

A neighbourly place, quiet, pretty, peaceful and friendly. It's one of those suburbs where you get to know your neighbours, feel safe and convenient for everything. Fantastic for families with kids, close to shopping & schools.

I highly recommend it as a place to live!

"Suitable for all ages, opening to a gold mine turning young families into glowing investors"

My family has had a property in this area for the last 20 years. In recent times has become very popular for families taking a solid base from down sizing retirees and renovating them into beautiful homes.

Take a short drive and you are at Riverlink the regions major shopping centre or if you are on foot there numerous restaurants that all cater for take away, dine-in and after stroll across to a multi screen cinema.

There are a lot of schools within the immediate area (St Mary's, St Edmunds). There is still traffic around school pick-up and drop-off times but it is quiet safe to let young children walk themselves home. On weekends, it is very quiet traffic wise so parking is never a problem and there is a regular bus and train service so you may not need to keep a second car.
