"Avoid at all costs"

I have lived in Bentley in the area between Manning Road and Chapman Rd for 6 months now. The neighborhood is littered with foreigners who don't have any respect for their neighbors. Not to mention, low income housing is but a stones throw away. Most of the residents are Curtain University students living in share houses, or foreign families that have immigrated. Almost every night you can hear police sirens speeding by to get to the low income housing area, and on the weekends drunks sit on the sidewalks and blast their stereos and have shouting matches with each other. This is not the place to live if you want to be able to relax and enjoy your home. Lately there have been several attacks on people walking at night. I don't own a dog and I have found dog poop left in my front lawn a number of times. Basically, avoid Bentley unless you can't afford to live anywhere else.

"Wyong Road - A very busy and noisey street"

A very busy and noisey street. Although it has a lovely park it tends to attract undesirables late at night. Had several break ins and several intruders in our yard on seperate occasions. Many people on this street complained about car windows being smashed and yes ours was one them! The street tends to have length so a lot of people leaving Manning road speed and hoon down this street and of course always in the early hours of the morning!
