"Cute and friendly neighbourhood"

We are a young couple who moved here from Somers. Absolutely love the town. It's so friendly and just has a great all round vibe. It's a family friendly neighbourhood with huge blocks of land and lots of parks.

"A quiet town to relax and enjoy."

We have lived in Rosebud, Moe, Langwarrin,Leongatha,Safety Beach,Carrum and some more palces over the past 18 years and Crib Point is by far the quietest most relaxed town. Sure there are plenty of mozzies here but you can get a can of aeroguard problem fixed. It is close to most things but far enough away to feel like your not in suburbia. The backyards are how they are meant to be BIG with plenty of room for that game of outdoor cricket or just to kick the footy. The boat ramp is just down the road with good fishing in Westernport Bay. We have never felt unsafe here and would not hesitate in walking around the neighborhood after hours. Yes there are hoons around here, but go to Langwarrin that is Hoon central (thats why we left there).
Plenty of wild birds around such as Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, Black Cockatoos, Tawney frogmouths, Parrots etc.
Pros
  • birds frogs
  • friendly neighbours
  • quiet
Cons

brianz5 jeff i live in disney sthave so for six years before that back in early 90s on stony point rd as for your comment on disney st you disgust me. dont bag it if you dont live in it seems all the trouble in disney st always comes from lorimer and surrounding streets or bittern way so therefore shut your mouth unless you know what it is your talking about it is people such as yourself that give something a bad name when its accually you that is the bad apple in a good tree ive seen your nanny comments before like the boy who cried wolf keep it up no one will listen to you very shortly dont be so pathetic and grow a pair man.
