"Stuart park, a cut above the rest"

When it comes to inner city living Stuart Park takes the cake, it offers the very best of Darwin with the feel of Suburban living, just a short walk to the CBD Stuart park has begun to thrive and it is popular with both the old and the young, a mixture of imposing, large family home, blend in with modern, stylish apartment blocks that house young professionals, with great parks in the area and arguably the best Laksa house in Darwin Bu Amy's, stuart park really is a quality Suburb, there is a high demand for both houses and units in the area and the rental yield for investors is around 6%.
Pros
  • Great location - close to city
  • Safe
  • combination of block sizes
  • lovely history mix of new and old
Cons
  • Expensive
  • if you didnt live there you wish you could
  • Lots of trees = lots of insects

"The old established part of Stuart Park is the best"

Schools, public transport, 2 minutes from Town, combination of old and new. Not too sterile. Build on solid land. When we paved our house we found broken china from a vase/plate dating back to the chinese immigrants. It was very exciting to think of market gardens being in our back yard. It has a history, a pulse.
Pros
  • lovely history mix of new and old
  • combination of block sizes
  • it has everythng and caters for everyone
  • Great location - close to city
  • Safe
Cons
  • if you didnt live there you wish you could

"Awesome suburb, 2mins to CBD"

I have been living in Stuart Park for 5 years and must say it is one of the best suburbs I have lived in, zero crime, almost no break ins, trees everywhere and 5mins walk to city or a 2mins drive. Stuart park has a small shopping centre that doesnt have many shops but who cares when in 2mins you can be in the city to work, eat or play. Has water views on duke street and in tipperary waters and some great parks as well.
Pros
  • Great location - close to city
  • Water views
  • Safe
Cons
  • Expensive
  • Lots of trees = lots of insects

"Great Vibe here"

Nice area of Darwin, just a stones throw to the city, lovely water views. Make sure you have a place with a swimming pool, its hot all year round in the tropics.
