"Good suburb for young/ party people"

If you are looking for peace & quiet, that is not the right place for you! Albion has a lot of new builds and huge complexes emerging at the moment. Those are definitely places for young singles/students and party-hard people. The noise level is usually pretty high, with music playing all day long, shouts and laughs. People are friendly and enjoying chatting and sharing a beer. There are a lot of eats out, small cafes with style and unique character. The parks and sport pitches are really good to do sport and family related activities, the suburb is pet friendly, we can see a lot of dog owners walking/ running with their dogs. The suburb is not "safe" per say, lot of petty theft and drug offenses, but overall it's not bad.
The train station makes this suburb access to the city super easy and quick; public transportation overall is quite good, not the best, but there are buses every 10 to 15 minutes that takes you to directly to the center, and trains even more often. The downside of living here is the lack of shops near by. If one doesn't own a car, it gets a bit difficult to get the grocery shopping and such things done.

"Stay a little longer in Albion"

Yes you are right, blink and you'll miss it or look around and it looks a bit busy or drab. But Albion is different to that. It's where neighbours become good friends, you can walk everywhere (helpful due to the parking limitations) and if you stay a little longer we will welcome you with open arms.
Great coffee at hidden cafes or secret lunch spots is the best, so stay a little longer and we will become friends too.
