"Balga, best place to be"

This is a friendly street where neighbours look out for one another and people arent afraid to say g'day. Its quite and well maintained down our end as the majority of the houses are owned not rentals. We have had no problems and been here close to a year.
My mother in lw has lived in this area for a couple of decades and never had any problems, I had always heard it was a bad area but am pleased to now correct people when they say 'geez, the bronx' as its not that way at all.
You are within 20minutes of the airport, beach and city so you are very central. We also have access to all the main ateries and great shops are not far away. Our local is Warwick shops and they are clean and staff are helpful. The Balga Plaza is its downfall... and anyone I talk to that has lived here say the same, they steer clear. They really should bulldoze it as its a horrible place.

We have Dan Murphys down the road as well as a great gym (fitness first) which say they are in Warwick, which they are not. But they said the 'clients' prefer to say Warwick instead of Balga... How will the name ever lose its stigma with things like this still going on?

Its a great area but like all areas it has its pockets. On a whole its clean, tidy, friendly and has beautifully maintained parks. Heaps of bus stops and the longest wait for a taxi so far has been 10mins as quite a few drivers live in the area lol, works well for us when we head out :)

Dont listen to the sceptics, its a great area so get in before its too late!!!

"Kilmurray Way, my first house"

I grew up in this area, and had no problems. So when it came time to purchasey first house I knew I would buy here. My family are builders so originally I was going to build town houses on my block, but after renovating my house and pulling up my carpet to expose my beautifully polished boards beneath I decided to keep my house as a house and do it up.

This is a great street, beautifully maintained parks are just around the corner. You have easy access to the main ateries ie: beach road, wanner road, Reid hwy and the freeway. I love being 15 minutes from the beach, 15 from the city, 15 from the airport etc. It is so central and I love that I can just jump in my car and be anywhere in a few minutes. Taxis are always quick as you are near the main roads, and public transport is at both ends of this street.

They have new townhouses and units in this street with great tenants/owners and only one rental that I am aware of and they are a family and no trouble at all.

Malaga is up the road, Warwick is up the road, everything is a hop skip and a jump away.

It's a great street and I am glad I brought here, as the other owners/ tenants are either families or professionals.

It has the country feel as when I walk my dog most mornings/ evenings everyone says a hello as I pas by.

I would totally recommend this for first home buyers, families, retirees pretty much anyone who wants a cheerful friendly community to live in.

Hope this helps :)
