I've been told not to buy at Glenwood Qld as it's full of drug people. Is this correct?

Oh man, Glenwood, especially all of the "arobor" roads are a great little place to live, and build a house, raise a family.
The negatives, are common brown & red belly blacks, so make sure you invest in a good mower if you have kids/pets.
If you consider someone who smokes a joint once in a while a "drug person", then you need to have another look. We're not talking ice or heroin here, lol.
Anyhow, should you choose to make Glenwood your home, you will not regret it. There's also swap meets, markets and a great neighborly community feel you just can't get in a big city.
Hope to see you here.

Just reading all the comments, my partner and I are thinking of buying some land and building our home in Glenwood...not a clue what the town is like but I have a bit more of an idea now. Actually sounds okay :)

Glenwood would be one of the safest places to live. The average age here would be close to 60 with a lot of retired people from all over the country living here.
LenW says he doesn't lock his house up...neither do we! It's not because we take the risk, we just don't see there is any risk.
We have Community Watch and regular Police patrols keeping an eye on things but like everywhere else we aren't immune to thieves that may come in from others areas so it could be easy for someone who doesn't live here to say what they like.
We have land and homes here that are half the price of Gympie and a quarter the price of the Sunshine Coast about an hour and a half south of here but we have Fraser Island, Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay, State Forest and National Parks on our doorstep.
We also have local markets, community events and a great lifestyle not complicated by big city thinking or security issues.
I don't want to sound like I'm selling the place but hey take a look for yourself.

Hi KerriK, we did not end up buying in Glenwood, but we did have a good look around. There are drug people everywhere, we know because we have lived all over, unless you can afford to live in somewhere like Ascot in Brisbane or similar in other capital cities. Glenwood is probably no different to any other slightly isolated community. Isolation tends to attract some fringe people or all types. Glenwood had some very nice pockets when we looked around, we only walked away from building there as the exercise was working out to be too expensive. Benefits: Gympie is 25 min - 30 mins away and we quite liked Gympie and only 1 hours drive away is Rainbow Beach, a beautiful surf beach and closer still are many little coastal villages along the Fraser coast. Good luck.

KerriK Hey 88KATmondo,
Thank you so very much for your honest reply to my question.
Your views to life match ours totally that there are drugs everywhere.
My brother was very strong in his conviction but, in saying that he has no idea that he has the people to the left of his house, the people behind them also and another two houses a few doors down that are all drug people. Actually one is a dealer.
We like what we have seen of Glenwood.
Once again, thinks for your input.
Cheers KerriK
