I just moved with my family to Glenroi and just love it, lovely friendly people. I moved from Sydney and wish I had made the move years ago.

There are pockets that are better than others. Some of Glenroi is industrial. The south eastern area is probably the worst- towards Bunnings and Leewood. Lots of housing commission. Most likely many decent people getting a bad reputation from a few. It's better towards the city side on the North West.

I agree with doctor seuss. If you want affordability to buy a house up to $150,000 the bowen area in orange would be your best bet. It use to be all dept of housing area a while ago and now it is 95% privately owned. There are only a few more selling in this area right now.

Well it depends what part of Glenroi you live in. Unfortunately I don't live in the best part. Dogs barking all night long, a certain neighbour constantly screaming at her kids. Not to mention the filthy home they all live in. Getting up to find eggs broken all over our car. So yeah. That's Kurim Ave

It would depend on whom you are asking. I would never buy in the glenroi area. Hubby is a local and told me never to go there. I am from a higher socioeconomic place in sydney. When my hubby took me for a drive through the area, with doors locked of course, it looked so bad it wasn't funny. Huge social problems. Best looking in bletchington, calaire and north orange.

This is a ridiculously elitist vision - but a good snapshot of what is wrong with Orange generally. There are some very privileged people in the town who spend their entire lives judging those less fortunate. The geography of the city means that there is actually a "wrong side of the tracks" mentality, which just makes it worse. I grew up in Glenroi and I'm now in another country pursing a PhD at one of the top 20 universities in the world, but I know of Orange-based people who have chosen not to send their kids to universities I have been teaching in purely because they found out that someone from a "bad" school in the "bad" part of town was teaching there. I'm glad I don't ever have to deal with small minded Australians like "TaniaBazza" anymore, and would never live anywhere in Orange because of that kind of behaviour (not because of "social problems"). If I absolutely had to go back there though, Glenroi has it's slightly rough areas, mostly around South Terrace, but it's what you make of it - I'd live there. The idea that you'd need to drive around with your car locked is what's really "so bad it's not funny". I've been to places like Detroit, where you really could be carjacked at any moment, and Glenroi isn't even remotely comparable. Given the moralistic attitudes from "good" half of town, though, you'd probably enjoy living out on a property away from the small minded hicks who think they are better than everyone else.

You clearly have no idea of Orange and the socio economic problems here! The town is full of junkies! There a few job prospects! And now the Homeless camp in the main stret

I agree with derpd. I have lived in Orange most of my life and the "wrong side of the tracks" mentality is extremely strong in Orange. The office I once worked in would often have people transferring to Orange from Sydney and other places and the first thing they were told was to buy on the "correct" side of the railway line so immediately they had the wrong idea of that side of town. Real Estate Agents and Orange people who have never lived on the apparent "wrong side of the tracks" promote this. I always lived on the "wrong" side and loved it. It is ridiculous that people downgrade parts of their own town without ever living there. They need to look in their own streets because all areas usually have a drug house or undesirable living there.

I was a bit horrified at TaniaBazza's comment originally, but have to admit when my wife and I did a drivethrough of Orange in July 2018 we ended up locking our car doors for some of it. (For context, we've lived in Kingswood and St Marys in NSW so we're no strangers to rough areas). The Eastern end of Glenroi gave a vibe that was honestly kind of terrifying especially seeing burnt out houses clearly left stagnant for a while. That being said, the middle and western areas of Glenroi (and pretty much anywhere else in Orange) seemed completely fine to me and I think I'd move there quite happily. Leura Ave etc looked pleasant. But that far eastern section near Bunnings really did look like the stuff of nightmares.

The East side of the railway line in Orange is beautiful. Not all of Glenroi is bad. There are pockets of Glenroi you should steer away from. I live in Tate Crescent in East Orange near Ophir Rd, and it has some of the most expensive houses in Orange. Very tranquil and beautiful. The west side of Orange also has quite a few problems with crime. It is everywhere.

Tate crescent isnt the most expensive homes in Orange, why is your name wealthy & why do you continually misinform people?

Hl have live in Glenroi my 66 year of life , we have no more trouble then other side of town. Look at New town in Sydney it use to be work class ect. Now it hard to get a house under $ 2, 000.000. It about people in Orange stop been snob. It always been like this

Orange is a great place, however, steer clear of the east. It has a high crime rate and a lot of industrial area around it. Buying on the west side is ideal.
