"Safe suburb"

I am living in brookfield. This is a nice place to live in. 5-6 mins drive to nearby train station, shopping centre, local shops, medical centres, schools and child cares...quick freeway access.
Before buying a house in the melton area, we heard lots of rumors about the safety issues. But we feel safe here. No issues so far.

"Brookfield, GREAT VALUE! Safe and friendly"

I have been living in Brookfield for over two years now and I LOVE IT.
The people are friendly and it's very safe at night ( I often walk late at night). Big blocks here are still cheap compared to the rest of Melb. Everything is very close by, Train station, Shops, Highway, Schools, Outdoor spaces etc.

"Sweet Home Brookfield"

We have been here for nearly 3 years now. Nice neighbours and quiet and lots of space for my son too. It's greener and safer and more space to move around which are just what we wanted. The school here is much more friendly but there are some burglaries in the newly developed areas.

"Brookfield, the best of Melton"

Brookfield is Melton’s most expensive and most popular suburb. A great place to live. AAA+

- Melton has a bad name but this is hear say and not reality in everyday life. All of Melton is as safe as any other suburb of Melbourne.

"Home of house invasions"

Lived in Brookfield for over a year been broken into twice and around 5 other people just in the same street did too I honesty can't believe people are rating it the best suburb like are you sure we are talking about the same place all I hear about is home invasions and cars being stolen since I moved after being broken into and having everything stolen and the house trashed and smashed up that area is an absolute nightmare!
