"good place"

I really do not understand that why people think the places where low income family stay are the worth place! Yes you can afford a fancy houses in good areas because you are rich or you do not have to raise the family! I am so sad that people would say avoid this area because there are lots of housing truth houses ! Being poor or being disable its not their fault! why cant we stop saying those words to hurt people living in this area ?? What is wrong with you people ! have you actually live in this area? Is something happend to you ?? Come on
Pros
  • affordable housing
  • All the facilities
  • Family orientated suburb.
  • Very close to Salisbury CBD
Cons
  • there is still a stigma from 20 years ago when S.N. was very different.

"Only live here if your alternative is homelessness"

Living here was the worst year of my life.

Only live here if your alternative is homelessness. Also make sure you have a car, because the streets aren't safe to walk during the day, let alone at night. The few people who don't want to kill you here are cold and unfriendly. Everything closes early, and most places have thick bars over windows.

During the night there were frequent sounds of police sirens and helicopters, as well as occasional sounds of gunfire. Tantrums and domestic disputes often echoed through the streets.
Pros
  • RAAF base has only occasional flyover noise
  • Has roads to allow you to drive out of the area
  • affordable housing
Cons
  • Police helicopter noise
  • Lack of phone reception
  • Unsafe to walk streets
  • crime
  • unemployment
