"Very convenient with a large, beautiful park with sports facilities. Busy on weekdays but quiet at night."

A successful mix of residential, commercial and green space. Good for those who love inner city living. I've lived here for 22 years and I absolutely love the convenience. Won't be moving any time soon. Alexandria Park is such an oasis and the sense of community there is strong, especially if you have a dog, kids (great playground & BBQ) or play sports - tennis, basketball, oval sports. Can be busy at peak hour, but pretty quiet at night. I don't hear any noise once I'm inside or at the park, but I wouldn't want my main living area at the front of the house if I was home regularly on weekdays. Only just enough parking. You can walk to anything you need; you don't really need a car. The streetscape is quite decent for a busy but bearable single lane each way road, with many Jacarandas and natives, as well as grand old Moreton Bay Figs at the park. The Waterloo Precinct and Metro development a 5 minute walk away will make this street even more convenient than it already is. True inner city living.
  • Everything you need is within walking distance
  • Alexandria Park is a wonderful oasis
  • Close to city and Redfern station
  • Great community spirit
  • Traffic noise on weekdays

"Noisy, underground train lines and dirt"

I have lived here for the past year; I paid a fairly substantial sum for a 2 bed apartment ($595 a week). The apartment is wonderful, great size, great fittings but both bedroom windows look out to Wyndham St, which is noisy, very noisy. So you can't open windows when you sleep unless you have ear plugs, plus the dirt that comes in from the traffic is terrible, black dust.

There is also a train line that runs directly under the apartments (27 Wyndham St and surrounding apartments will be affected I'm guessing). The trains run from 5am to 1am and they also send quarry trains through as well. Sometimes the building vibrates. If it's been raining then the train noise and vibration is even worse. It took me at least 3 months before I began to get used the train noise.

Another issue is that most of the apartment’s lounge balconies face into a courtyard which means that balcony conversations rebound and echo around for everyone to hear. I haven’t been able to use my balcony as the neighbours complain of the noise.

I would recommend finding somewhere off the main road and away from the train line, unless of course noise and dirt don't really bother you.
