"Not nice"

yeah the houses here are cool and all but the people here are not. my neighbors are just terrible because they party all night and are always doing dumb things. there are others down the street from me who also do the same and tag up the whole area. my friends around me have been broken into and apparently a guy i know was mugged.

"A hidden subrub"

East Toowoomba has been seen as a suburb of rich houses and no crime, but after living here for 10+ years I can so no, that is completely false. I have had many friends in the area who have been broken into and 2 other friends who had been mugged on separate occasions. The graffiti here is everywhere now. I would say about 25% of the electricity poles in the area are tagged up and so are fences, schools, toilets and even cars and houses. There are kids standing on corners near the Fairholme Girls School all night just yelling, blasting music, drinking, smoking, smashing bottles and sometimes even fighting. It is also quite the coincidence that wherever these groups of kids pop at, the tagging and burglaries increase dramatically in that area.

"Not what it looks like"

Been living here for 10+ years now and it's not what I and other thought it was. People hype it as the rich area and in some way it is but people don't realise 15 years ago East toowoomba was just a dump. Druggies, drug dealers, gangs and really poor citizens. Houses were some of the cheapest in Australia in areas like east toowoomba. But now they removed a bit of that stuff and moved in richer people with more expensive houses. But the crime is still here and thriving. Have had many friends cars stolen, houses broken into, property vandalised and people mugged. Drugs are still here, kids ride up the street at 2 in the morning on bikes, music blasting all night from other houses, bad drivers and more. The place is a mad house and a lot of the times I wish I lived somewhere else.
