"A family-friendly street"

Our little street, while can occassionally be a little busy with school traffic, is generally quiet, peaceful and family friendly. We enjoy a good relationship with our neighbours while not feeling like everyone knows our business. I feel safe in my home when my Husband is away, and have always found our street to be reasonably crime-free. We are easy walking distance to the local shops, banks, chemists and schools. We are only a short drive from the bigger shopping precincts. We enjoy the use of the best parks and wildlife reserves in the area, all of which are well maintained by council. I would encourage anyone with a friendly family outlook to join us here! It's a great place to raise my family.
Pros
  • Wide clean street
  • Excellent access to local shops, schools and amenities
  • Great neighbours
Cons
  • Not enough parking
  • Not enough trees to park under
  • Walkers often leave litter and dog poo on the foot path!

"Good family area"

Avondale Rd is one of those streets that gets used as a short cut between Regent st and Hobart Rd. Despite this, traffic is not tto bad, and drivers are generally mindfull fo local foot traffic. We have found this to be a friendly, quietly community minded street with pleasant neighbours who tend to keep to themselves unless specifically approached. There doesn't appear to be much crime, although sometimes people coming home after a big night at the pub walk past and cause a bit of a rucous.

There are quiet a few homes with dogs, who all like to have the odd chat to each other. However, at night, they seem to sleep well.... traffic is minimal at night, and I have little fear of crime. Our car is parked on the street most of the time and has not yet been damaged or stolen.

We live very close to great parks, the pool, and nice caffes. The local shops are useful for a quick shop, and the local library is a nice place to visit with young children for a good story and craft time. We have found most people reasonably friendly, however there is the odd snob who won't talk to you on the way past. You can walk anywhere you wish (it's nice and flat), and it's a quick drive to great shopping centers, the Uni, the hospitals and the beach. We have an ambulance and fire station, 2 chemists, 1 newsagent, 2 pubs, 1 club/gym (Wests), 2 great schools and several specialty shops including 3 good butchers, a green grocers, and IGA and a couple of bakeries. So you don't have to leave the neighbourhood if you don't want to! And you can walk EVERYWHERE!

We love it here, and we hope to stay for years to come!
