"Not that bad"

I've lived in the area and/or close to all my life. Yes there are plenty of ferals but it's pretty laid back and I wouldn't call it unsafe. I've walked the streets after dark, never had an issue but the growing population means that there are more and more idiots about. The shopping has vastly improved and there are alot of schooling options with a 5-10km radius. It's a different lifestyle out there, noone seems to care much about any or believe in rushing about. Very small town yokel style. But its lightyears ahead of where it once was. I would happily move back there. In regards to break ins and car theft, Townsville in general is going through a huge crime boom, not just Deeragun. And I have NEVER heard gunshots.
Pros
  • Fast growing
  • Shopping options
  • Smaller population away from city
Cons
  • Ferals are about
  • Not very aesthetically pleasing
