How do I know what a "bad area" is in Bendigo? What streets are they?

So, kid looks like getting into LaTrobe Uni and we want to make a tree change. Not rich (travelled a lot and now paying the price), looking at those suburbs that everyone says are "bad", Eaglehawk, Long Gully, California Gully etc. What streets should I avoid - i mean actual street name and how do I KNOW they're awful streets/neighbours? How can I make that judgment? - and why? I did note that the crime stats are high for California Gully (Crimes against persons) but I'm assuming that these are crimes complained of by one or two people over and over again, eg breaking IVOs etc? I'd really appreciate some advice as I'm not sure where to look but do like Tom Thumb lake etc. I want to be a 20 min bike ride from Lake Weeroona.
