"Rented for 2 years"

Close to the city with great train service. Streets and houses are nice in some pockets however some areas are close to industrial districts with a high number of housing trust homes with drug users roaming the streets at all hours. Main streets along the train line usually has lots of graffiti and abandoned trollies lying around. Majority of houses have screens and bars over the windows suggesting high levels of crime.

We had an attempted home invasion at 3am on a weeknight which prompted us to move out (could happen anywhere) but i would suggest this suburb is much higher risk than most.

"'Edwardstown, the place to be?'"

Edwardstown is a fairly good place to live. Public transport just around the corner, not much traffic and reasonably quiet ite besides the neighbourly parties here and there. Neighbours are nice and parks are clean and green. You might get the occasional break in but ever suburb has break-ins. There might be a couple of young kids zipping through your street and there are a few housing trust areas, even some druggies, but Edwardstown is a safe close to the city suburb.
Pros
  • Clean parks and streets
  • Quiet
  • Friendly
Cons
  • Druggies
  • Occasional party
  • People roaring through streets from time to time

"Close to the city and the beach, but still an affordable place to buy"

Appears to be a suburb on the move. Less than 7km's from the city. Fantastic access to public transport, with train, buses and tram not to far away. Whilst it neighbours with more pricey suburbs, Edwardstown remains much more affordable. Plenty of shops nearby, and the Castle Plaza shopping centre. Close to all the pubs and resteraunts South Road and Marion Road have to offer. I believe it was once a housing trust area, which may be why its still affordable. But with these areas being updated, and plenty of new builds popping up, it will probably soon follow suit with the surrounding more expensive areas. Hidden throughout are grassy parks and play areas.
