"Small suburb in central location"

I have lived in Woodroffe for 14 years and raised 2 children here. It has a good neighbourly spirit and is well located. Shops, schools, childcare centres, sporting facilities are all close by with the city centre only 5 minutes drive away. Darwin city also 20minutes drive.
Pros
  • Close to Palmerston city
  • Close to schools, childcare centres and sporting facilities
  • Good neighbourly spirit
  • Close to minor shopping centres
Cons
  • Distance to Hospital
  • Nightlife
  • Dogs barking

"Small Suburb, Slum like in places"

Woodroffe has good sides and bad sides, there are some areas within the suburb where vagrancy of some rather uncouth groups choose to hang, and there are some better parts. Fenced houses for the most part to help deter crime, streets can be quiet, however some streets have a high rate of hoonage down them with street racers enjoying the quiet back streets with sharp turns.
Pros
  • Close to the local Military Base
  • Close to minor shopping centres
  • Short drive (30m) to Darwin City
Cons
  • Vagrancy
  • Hoons
  • Generalised Gloominess
